Hi, First of all, congratulations on your upcoming wedding and a married life. I would echo what other members said, that the oath is a formality (an unnecessary one!).

Re: Marrying a Bohra

That oath (misaq) is quite stern. Search for it on this website or somebody may have the whole text and they can put it here.

That maybe one reason you are getting sketchy answers.

Many bohras (yours truly included) have given/taken it even while being ambivalent about some of its clauses.

All the time in masjids people shout at small kids for creating any distrubance during namaz. And here these people are shouting and disturbing people from praying namaz.

Bunch of sick folks using the name of Imam Husain and Moulana Ali to create disturbance during namaz.
