A. According to Hindu Laws you cannot take divorce before 1 year of the marriage
However there are special conditions of cruelty whereby you can take divorce. As is already mentioned that the husband is not ready to give divorce there are just two options left..

1. Convince the husband for a mutual divorce [best possible way].
2. Contest the divorce by proving cruelty under the special grounds of taking divorce.

You can also start living separately but then the divorce will not be in your favour as you will not be entitled to maintenance or alimony. If in case you do not want maintenance and alimony, you can start living separately and then the hudband himself will file for a divorce.

Thanks and Regards

A. Dear Sir,
They can go for mutual divorce and the consent of the husband must be taken by using any known method. The cooling period of 6 months may be waved off as per following SC judgment.

But Sir as I said her husband will not be agree for divorce, even there will be family pressure on her. In extreme condition is it okay for her to stay away from his home and then file on based of desertion.
