If your spouse purposefully performed a sterilization procedure preventing pregnancy without both partners consent, how would God feel about divorce to fulfill that desire of motherhood for oneself?
God does not like divorce and divorce was not ordained from the beginning. God is a God of restoration and reconciliation. 1Cor 7:10-16 gives us instruction regarding marriage. God is telling us here that wives are not to separate from their husbands; if either spouse has a spouse who does not believe in God but wants to stay married, they are not to divorce; if the unbelieving spouse leaves, let them leave. God does allow for some exceptions to this such as in the case of adultery or abandonment however God is still able to restore the marriage when both spouses are willing. God tells us in His Word that He will fulfill the desires of those who reverently and worshipfully fear (respect) Him (Psalm 145:19).
