    See above. There's no point trying to correct sentence 2 because it doesn't make sense. We don't propose love.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: John proposed Ann marriage and she accepted it.

    Perhaps, you are confusing propose with profess. You can say "John professed his love for Ann."

    If we have to use "marriage" then what do we need to say? I heard it somewhere "he proposed her marriage". It is incorrect to say this, right?

    You can say "he proposed marriage to her". "marriage" is not needed but is not wrong.

    "John asked for her hand in marriage."
