Ghanaian media personality, Berla Mundi has sort of revealed her inherent phobia for marriage which may be why she’s single at age 33.
The TV3 presenter has always maintained that she would get married at the right time and would never rush into any relationship or union under duress.
At the start of this year, Berla Mundi tweeted that one of her wishes for herself is to find genuine love…love that is devoid of malice, betrayal and heartbreaks.
On the back of that, Berla Mundi has posed a question that subtly reveals her gamophobia (a fear of relationship commitment. This may be due to past relationship trauma or witnessing a negative experience of marriage in your past).
She asked her fans the obvious question: Why are so many couples divorcing? What’s wrong.
Why are so many couples divorcing? What’s wrong? ???

Although she received quite some answers, Berla Mundi begged the question of why marriages are breaking apart at an alarming rate. The rate of divorce, according to available data, has reached a record high.
This is a clear reason for fear and hesitation for someone like Berla Mundi who does not want to make a mistake when it came to choosing a life-long partner.
The fear factor for Berla Mundi is whether it would work or end abruptly like many others.
