This is an answer given by a doctor for this question:
As a doctor, I know another word. From New Latin, from Greek gametē (means wife) the word comes 'gametophobia'. Ideally it should be 'fear of wife' but sources say that it's gamete+gamos (marriage) SO it's actually 'fear of marriage'. So, if we describe a bachelor 'gametophobic', he's afraid of getting married but if we refer a married man a gametophobic, he's afraid of his wife? I'm not sure!
