Kaffaarah for breaking an oath

Q: One day I had a fight with my wife regarding some sexual issues and unfortunately I told her "It is haram for me to have sex with you". I love my wife so much. Is there any kaffara for me?

A: You will have to give the kaffarah for breaking an oath when you go to your wife. The kaffarah for breaking an oath is feeding 10 poor people 2 meals each or clothing each one of them or giving the equivalent of sadaqatul fitr to each one.

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