No. If you marry someone else while still married to your wife, the new marriage would be void (meaning invalid, or legally nonexistent) and you would be guilty of the criminal offense of bigamy. Rather than create those problems for yourself, just go get a lawyer to draw up a divorce for you. Don't let this situation drag on for years.
