Dear if you wish to file divorce on the grounds of cruelty then you should have some evidences , and your marriage should be at least 2 years old. Without solid proofs you can't get the divorce so easily.

Do not worry, getting divorce is not easy task for husband if you are not ready to get divorce, than he will have to file divorce petition under section 13 of hindu marriage Act in which he will have to prove cruelty at your hand which is not easy task for him so do not worry about divorce and live your life peacefully.
