What is the remedy if one of the party does not appear before the court in case of divorce by mutual consent?

I got married and I and my wife cannot work it out properly. We have a son of 20 years old now. Since 15 years we do not have any physical relations too. Due to a conservative family, I tried my best to convince my parents for divorce but they didn’t agree. Finally, 2012, my dad agreed. my wife took 1.5 years to decide on all her demands to be fulfilled and agreed for mutual consent divorce. Now it is been 6 months completed. We have a second and final hearing this month. Now again she has changed her mind and has new demands which I am not in a position to fulfill. She is mentally torturing me and not staying at her house claiming it is her right to stay with me. Meanwhile, I am involved with some other girl who genuinely loves me. If she has not withdrawn her consent within 6 months of the period and now if she doesn’t appear in court or disagree what is the remedy? I am already suffering from panic attacks and I doubt that my wife is also going around with somebody and she is intentionally harassing me for more money.
