Is It Ok To Divorce?

I’ve known my wife for over 10 yrs married for 5yrs separated for 1 yr.
My wife moved out because she felt I was too controlling and decided she
didn’t want to work on fixing our relationship. Our therapist felt that her reason
for leaving was not warranted and that we could work on fixing our relationship.

Question: Is it ok in Catholic faith to file for a divorce and move on since she may
already be dating some one new?
