your wife has to file her written statement . case will be refrred for counselling inorder to explore possibility of  reconcilation between parties . if counselling fails case will proceed on merits . your wife can refuse to give you divorce . . contested divorce cases takes some years to be disposed of

If your wife is not willing to give you divorce then she will file her reply to your divorce petition and a contest will be set up in the court. After her reply is filed you will have to submit the evidence in support of the grounds on which you have sought divorce. The case will be sent for mediation where the mediators will strive to bring reconciliation between both of you. If mediation fails the case will be remanded back to court for being decided in accordance with the law. She can certainly refuse to give you divorce.

in your petition for divorce you must have made out a case for divorce on grounds of mental cruelty . in your evidence you have to narrate those incidents .you would be cross examined by your wife advocate  if court is convinced that incidents mentioned by you constitute mental cruelty you would get divorce .

you cannot improve upon your case made out in petition filed by you for divorce . for instance refusal to have sex amounts to mental cruelty . filing of false 498A case  wherein you have been acquitted would be mental cruelty . 

making false allegations of having affairs with other ladies   would amount to mental  cruelty
