Dear Baba, If your ground of divorce is based on desertion then you are to wait for two years, whether you like it or not and whether it is unreasonable and cause great hardship tp you are all immaterial. Like a man carrying the weight of the world you are to bear the burden of waiting period of two years, as per the wisdom of the parliament. Sub clause (ib) of Sub Section (1) of Section 13 of the HMA  says "has deserted the petitioner for a continuous period of not less than two years immediately preceding the presentation of the petitioner.
