Salaam Alaykum,
 
Thank you for your question.
 
My dear sister, usually its seen in cases where men are already married from before, they aren’t willing to make their second marriage official.
You can still try and talk to your husband or ask a trustworthy and influential person to talk on your behalf.
 
If this doesn’t work,then you have a choice to either continue your relation the way it is or ask for a divorce.
 
For divorce you can contact your marja(mujtahid) directly or his representatives in your city .
