Sorry to hear about your situation. But now a days these matters are on hike.
Legally 498A is criminal offence which does not LEADS to divorce .. but it can be the strong BASIS of filing a divorce petition under section 13 of Hindu Marriage Act. Now if your husband is ready for divorce with mutual consent then u can opt for section 13B of HMA if not then go for 13A.
Your full description of life situation clears that you can easily get divorce.
Hope this may clear your query if you further want to consult can call me on my number free for first time
