The court will not ask about the SMS on the first day itself. It will ask your husband to only file the written statement at this stage. However, filing of RCR in itself is a proof of the fact that you don't want to separate from your husband.
The divorce proceedings and the RCR would go on simultaneously and each would be decided on its own merits
