How can you marry again without getting a legal divorce. The only way to do that is to convert to Islam and marry. In case you decide to get married without getting a divorce, your wife can sue you for bigamy. If you are looking to start a peaceful married life again, this would hardly be the way to do so.
The only reason you don’t want to apply for divorce is because you will have to pay her money. She has not as yet asked for any money, but if you go in for another marriage or convert to marry, she would most probably take some legal action. Whatever legal action she takes, the court will make you pay maintenance to her if she is not working or child support if she is. Therefore the act of trying to start life again without paying any money will be defeated and will bring uncalled for tensions.
Your options are clear. You can either ask for mutual divorce or file for divorce. It is a long fight and in your case, you don’t seem to have many reasons to divorce. Even if the divorce comes through, some money will exchange hands.
The other option is to quietly live with somebody else without the entanglements of marriage. If you are discreet, you could live reasonably happily for a long time before your wife will even realize what is happening.
The choice is yours.
