Jeg skrev "min farfar elsker min farmor", som var rigtig. Jeg er nysgerrig hvis "min farfar elsker min mormor" passer også ^^

Yes, but there may be trouble in the Family. What would farmor and morfar think?

Is there a preferred way of saying this in Danish: that is, would you more likely use "bedstefar/bedstemor", or "farfar/morfar/farmor/mormor"?

You can say "farmor" and "farfar" about your father's parents and "mormor" and "morfar" about your mother's parents. "Bedstefar" can be used for both "farfar" and "morfar" while "bedstemor" is for both "farmor" and "mormor"!
