If you're in a context where "love marriage" and "arranged marriage" are fixed phrases for two possibilities, you can write Would you prefer a love marriage or an arranged marriage? If you're writing for an international audience that might be unaware of the terms, you should explain that in your culture, marriages which are not arranged are called love marriages.

Can we also say "Would you like to have love or arranged marriage" or "I would like to have an arranged or a love marriage"?

So, can we say "you will marry for love" or "her's wasn't an arranged marriage she married for love"?

Note my corrections above. With those corrections, you can use both.

The first version is wrong because it needs the indefinite articles you included in the second one, which is correct.

"Would you like to have a love or an arranged marriage"? "I would like have a love marriage".

Theirs isn't an arranged marriage. They married for love. Theirs was a love marriage.

Most of the people have arranged marriages.

"Would you like to have a love or an arranged marriage?"[STRIKE]?[/STRIKE] "I would like have a love marriage." [Put sentence-ending punctuation inside quotation marks when it ends both the quoted sentence and the sentence it's quoted in. In this case, the quoted sentences stand alone, so the punctuation has to be within the quotation marks.]

Theirs isn't an arranged marriage.:tick: They married for love.:tick: Theirs was a love marriage.:tick:

Most [STRIKE]of the[/STRIKE] people have arranged marriages.

See above.
