Dear Querist
This is a matter of contested divorce and if husband proved aall the allegations then the court may passed an order and grant divorce.

1. Just wanting to divorce is not enough. He has to file the application for divorce on prescribed grounds based on which divorce is granted as per HM Act,

2. Moreover such grounds mentioned in his application has to be proved with evidence  which will be contested by the wife,

3. The Court will pass appropriate order on hearing both the parties.
