Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh,
If a wife says to her husband, ‘I will never have intimacy with you’, would this count as a qasm? If so, does she have to fast if she breaks her qasm?

Wa Alaikum Salam,
If the words, “I will never have intimacy with you,” were mentioned without swearing or taking an oath by Allah’s name or one of His names, then that will not be considered an oath.
Only Allah knows best
