I once made a promise on my future wife that to not commit the sin .But I broke it.Now my question is Will she become haram for me because I broke the promise made upon her?

Respected brother

This is an invalid oath. You can only take oath on the name of Allah. Islam prohibits taking oath on names other than Allah's.

Your fiancée (or the woman you are intending to propose) and will not become Haram for you. However, you should repent for the sin as commiting a sin is sinful regardless of whether you take an oath or not.

And Allah knows best
