 30:14
30:14 Thus, in the case of every vow or oath involving self-denial, [a woman's] husband can uphold them, and her husband can annul them.
Kol-neder vechol-shvu'at isar le'anot nafesh ishah yekimenu ve'ishah yeferenu.



Commentary:

self-denial
  While the father of a young girl can annul any vow, a husband can only annul a vow that involves self-denial (Nedarim 79b; Yad, Nedarim 12:1). It does not matter how minor the self-denial is (Yad 12:4). Any self-denial on the part of the wife will ultimately affect the husband (HaKethav VeHaKabbalah). Others, however, maintain that the father also can annul only vows that involve self-denial (Ran, Nedarim 68a, s.v. Lomer: Rosh, Nedarim 79a, s.v. VeElu; Yoreh Deah 234:58).
