Contested divorce - How long does it take to get free Contested divorce - How long does it take to get free

How long does it take to get free from this marriage if it is contested divorce? I have major differences and compatibility issues and also past baggages of mother in law issues that led me to detach from my husband with whom I had a love marriage. Since he never took any stand in past, I kept getting detached from marriage and now I want freedom back. He doesn't want mutual divorce, if I file it on grounfs of emotional detachment, will it work or the case will keep dragging even when I don't want to stay in this marriage?
