Legal Question in Family Law in Virginia

I live in VA. My husband left me and our 5 kids and moved in with another woman. They posted pics all over facebook stating their affair. I filed for divorce and am awaiting our court date. I want to know why I can't get an immediate divorce based on grounds of adultery.
