Try to understand your hubby,he is working for family containing you.However,you can always start the divorce proceeding but difficult and time consuming.

You can file for divorce on mutual consent if that is what you really want. But as a human being I would advice to relook, consult a family counselor. Or plan a baby. If you have no problems with your husband, the Court will also try to reconcile to save your marriage.

few misunderstandings may crop up in life due to communication gap. so always try to solve the issue by directly speaking with him. however, you can get divorce.

If both of you agree for divorce then you can go for mutual consent or other wise it is not so easy to get divorce based on your statement.

before filing for divorce visit a marriage counselor . it appears that although your husband is doing well professionally you feel lonely on account of his long hours at work . these days in corporate sector most jobs demand employees work  over 14 hours a day . on account of intense competition employees have no option but to work so long hours . 

it is better you also take up some part time work . it will keep you busy since you dont have a child at present . 

if situation dosent improve after counselling file for divorce . better do so by mutual consent as contested divorces take years to be dsiposed of .

Divorce should be the last resort when the differences between the spouses are beyond any reconciliation. Unless and until marriage has reached a point of no return an effort should be made to save it. In your case I am of the considered opinion that marriage has not yet reached a point of no return, and it can still be retrieved out of rough waters. 

As advised by other experts, you should visit a marriage counselor. The jobs in the corporate sector are very demanding. He is spending most of his time at work and this is the reason why you feel neglected by him.

Meet a marriage counselor and share your feelings with your husband. If nothing desired comes out of it then you may separate through a mutual divorce.

Is your husband aware of your decision? What is his take on the issue? I suggest you to discuss the issue with him once. 
If both of you decide that the relationship is not working out, you can decide the future course of action mutually. 

If both of you are not able to discuss and solve the issue yourselves, take the help of elder/friends or an advocate.
