You can seek for divorce in the event of cruelty from wife. Threatening to file false cases, filing false cases against husband, doing such acts knowingly that they are false that could cause husband to lose his job all amount to cruelty.

You can file for divorce if you find the acts done by the wife amounts to cruelty.

Repeated threats to other spouse making false allegations amounts to cruelty. Next time if she threatens record the conversation.
Thereafter file a petition for divorce if you are Hindu and marriage taken place as per Hindu tradition under Section 13(1)(a) of Hindu marriage act.
