The desire for a happy marriage and family is an eternal human goal, but in China, young people's traditional views of love, marriage, family, and society are facing significant obstacles due to the effects of reform and opening up policy, the market economy's competitive pressure, and significant social changes. Marriage was always a joyful moment in life, but surveys suggest that an increasing number of young people are expressing fear about marriage. In this study, the psychological features of modern youths' dread of marriage were specifically investigated and researched using the interview method. The results revealed four key psychological aspects of modern youths' fear of marriage. Since there are relatively few scholars studying the psychological factors of fear of marriage, we hope that this study will provide some help to scholars studying the psychological factors of fear of marriage.
