1)refusing to have sex is ground for divorce as it amounts to mental cruelty . 

2) if wife is virgin then you would be able to prove that marriage has not been consummated

Marriage without sex is akin to a body without without blood. That marriage without sex is an anathema has been recognised by courts. You can apply for divorce on this ground.
