G is for Gamophobia #atozchallenge

There once was a man with a long-time Miss
For years he avoided her dream of wedded bliss
Frustrated and sore
She walked out the door
Leaving his heart empty like an abyss

(c) Sanch @ Living my Imperfect Life

Note: Gamophobia is the fear of marriage

    I absolutely love this theme you’ve chosen.
    I was on a phobia kick for a while on my own blog.
    I wrote a two part short story on this very thing, plus fear of the number thirteen, the dark, spiders, ghosts, heights, and so on. A lot of them were for the month of October.
    I will read along eagerly with each letter and maybe use some of them for future phobia blog posts.
    Thank you.

    Nice choice of words for this one! Very appropriate. I had no idea there was an actual phobia about marriage.
