If your lover is sure that he needs a divorce from his first wife then,
He needs to file a divorce petition in the Court and contest it.

This process usually takes time unlike mutual consent divorce which takes place in an year time. Even if you have married him in a temple, that will not legalize your marriage with him.

Indian Law does not accept this wedding when the first wife is also legally wedded to him.

There are chances that an case of adultery, mental harassment and cruelty be also filed by the wife against him.
