Misogamy is the irrational fear of marriage. It has a few other names: Gamophobia, Commitment-Phobia, Cold-Feet. I’m sure there are others. What it burns down to is that someone suffering from misogamy will have an unnecessarily severe apprehension to the institution of marriage.
I used to be afraid of marriage. Mention the word and my hands would get clammy, my throat would get tight, my chest would begin to ache and butterflies would begin to swarm in my stomach. I couldn’t stomach the idea of making a commitment to anyone, even to a man I loved with all my heart.
