Vow can be used as either a noun or a verb, but oath is always a noun. People take (say, keep, etc.) marriage vows, but no one would say marriage oath. A person would take religious vows. But when a person is sworn into office, they take (or swear) an oath.

Q: Qual é a diferença entre oath e vow,pledge, promise ?
A: @chenxshuo: I would say degree, everyone makes promises but for someone to say "I swore an oath"

"you must vow to never divorce"

sounds more serious and has more weight to it.

by definition pledge is a solemn promise, so by definition it has more weight but some people might pledge to do something and not follow through or do it half way so I kind of see it as a not so strong promise because people don't often commit to it. for example:
students could sign a pledge at school to recycle, but when they get home they don't do it.

Vow is more in the context of marriage, when people get married they say their vows, what they promise to do for each other

an oath is more like what they do in the government and in court you must swear to do A,B, and C

and a promise is more likely what you will hear people use in every day context.

"I pledge to recycle"

"I vow to cherish you"

"I swore an oath"

"I promise I'll take out the trash"
