Hi. What will happen if I just leave the U.S while my AOS is pending... I came on K1 visa and got married and filed for AOS

The application for adjustment is considered abandoned if you depart without advance parole and you will not be readmitted.
Attorney Robert Brown's (former INS Director, 1972-99) reply to your question is general in nature, and does not constitute legal advice as all facts are known to him. For specific advice or representation you should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law. Mr. Brown's reply on AVVO does not create an attorney/client relationship not constitute legal advice.
You will abandon your petition if you leave the US while your AOS is still pending. Wait until you receive Advance Parol to travel outside the US.
If you leave you abandon the application. Unless you have approved advance parole. Your adjustment interview won't go well if you are separated. If you leave and manage later to salvage your marriage, your husband can file for you with consular processing and it will take 8 months to a year to get you back here. Good luck.
