It has been said that the focus of someone with anuptaphobia is change; finding the ideal partner may be far more important than other aspects of life, and remaining single is something to be feared at all costs. There are many phobias, but something about this one interested me. Anuptaphobia has two different parts.

The person would usually be hesitant because the fear drives him/her to worry about making commitments with the wrong person.

Many people hope and plan for the day when they find the perfect partner with whom to share their lives. These people may choose partners and marry quickly without time to consider the consequences. Some people marry even if known each other just a few months. They may stay in harmful relationships where there is a promise of marriage or lifetime commitment, because they fear becoming suddenly single.

Most people spent their lives looking for love, and they want to marry a soul mate; when this seems like a dream that cannot come true, anxiety may develop. Our society provides us with happy love stories and perfect endings. For example movies, they are made up and usually life or love does not have a happy ending, but there are some people out there that get the happy ending but not too often. Anuptaphobia may cause some problems that make the goal of not being single much harder to attain.
