A:

Waalykum salam Brother. 

 
Thank you for you Question. 
 
First of, I feel you need to seek urgent help and speak out your problems with a counselor or local Aalim of your community. Committing  suicide is Haram and it is not going better your situation from what you are in, rather make it worse! 
Also, There has to be a solid reason for your denial of her as you wife! 
Pls place all the pros and cons of this marriage and discuss each throughly with an Aalim or counselor so that youre able to make a firm decision. 
 
On a side note, if you are not accepting your wife as is, for no reason, then know that Allah would despise such an act from you. After all, she too is someone’s daughter, sister etc who has left her entire life behind and agreed to marry you and live with you. Even after a whole year! 
 
I hope you’re able to make good decisions InshaAllah 
Kind regards
