gametophobia (also gamophobia) - the fear of marriage

{anuptaphilia would be the love of staying single -- a slightly different thing altogether.}

Here is yet another list of phobias. If anuptaphobia is fear of remaining single, then the antonym would be fear of getting married, gamophobia.

Ha! I have no idea why this strikes me as being very, very funny, but it does!! Sure does seem there should be such a word, and, if there isn't, we need to invent one!

Come, come, surely that would be monicafidelophobia?

No, what I was looking for was a fear of remaining married. Retrospectively, I shouldn't have asked for the antonym.

Anyway, Bill suggested I ask SWMBO, but she knows that she doesn't need to fear it and therefore she wouldn't need a word for it. After all, it is not an irreversible state. The word she would probably be looking for is one which represents a loathing of the prospect of getting and/or remaining married ...
