Wife taking an oath that if she does something then her nikaah will break

Q: If a woman says verbally that she takes an oath on the Quran without placing her hand on the Quran that she will do this and if she does not do it then her nikaah will be no more. What are the consequences on her nikaah and has the oath been taken?

A: Her nikaah will not be affected.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
