Not a problem. You actually have several options you can consider.
His behaviour would be classed as unreasonable behaviour, so that is one ground you could use.
Next as you have both left for more than two years then desertion can be considered and you may not need there consent for this.
A third option could be living a part for more than two year, but the other party must agree to this.
Finally, and probably the best in you case is the living apart for 5 years. Much the same as the two-year separation grounds, this final option has the advantage of not requiring consent from your spouse. If you can show that you have lived apart for over five years, the court will usually grant the divorce on these grounds.
You can actually make you application online using the government website and I have attached a lead to there for you.
Good luck and take care.
