Respected Madam,
Generally I suggest to all of my clients to try to continue there relationship. As there is no guarantee about the next one. But its your life and you are the best judge to decide it as you wish to continue it or not. I do agree that in new marriages wife's have some dreams and expectations from the husbands and some time due to some official work or due to their bachelor life time life style they failed to perform their duties as husband as per the expectations of their wives. In my personal experience some guys are not able to change themselves so being the better-half/partner/a good friend its my humble request that please try to understand the reason of this type of behaviour pattern of your husband and try to improve his attitude with your love. But if you already tried all this than approach a lawyer to file an appropriate suit to get divorce and about your rights you have to answer some questions like : your date of marriage, your status: employed/housewife, no.of issues etc.
Than only i will suggest you the right path.

thanks
Mohan S.
