How to prevent my family from arranged marriage?

My family is Bengali and they don’t want me to marry a girl I love. My mom and my big brother asked me if they were going to choose my wife as a joke and I said no. They started to laugh at me and say I should feel ashamed. How could I prevent them from forcing me to marry someone I don’t know.
I live in Spain and and I’ve never liked a Bengali girls, most of them aren’t my type.
Please help 😭
