Anuptaphobia

fear of remaining single

Gamophobia

fear of marriage

Can we count on our Copious Readers to use these words henceforth when discussing issues of single’s rights and the marriage mythology? = )  (It’s an amazing but sadly unsurprising fact that, after 1.5 years of blogging on WordPress, I still don’t know how to insert the yellow smiley-face icon.)

Strange. Some online dictionaries give a slightly different meaning:

Anuptaphobia – The fear of being alone or marrying the wrong person in life

It’s a sort of damned if you do, damned if you don’t type of phobia.
