Can a Woman File for Divorce

A few months ago my husband left me for someone else. He wants a divorce, I don’t. I forgive him and I want to work on it. I refuse to file for divorce, so it is up to him to choose whether or not he will file. He hasn’t as of yet. God hates divorce. However he may never file, or return to me. Where does this leave me? I cannot find anything in the bible where the woman can give her husband a certificate of divorce, only the man. Am I reading out of context?I just want to do what pleases God. Anyone have any answers for me?

I’ll give my two cents. I don’t see anywhere in the bible that forbids a woman to divorce her husband if he has been unfaithful.
