Your husband can alone file a Divorce Petition arraying you as a Respondent in the said Petition.

But he has to fight for a long time since you do not wish to give a divorce to him. It will be a contesting Divorce Petition.

Reconciliation can be worked out if both of you get proper counselling.

If reconciliation doesn't work, you will have legal options to protect yourself.
