‘I will always love you,’ I promise.
This is one of the most common broken promises, perhaps because it’s also one of the most difficult ones to keep, too. However, thousands of people all over the world promise each other eternal love every day.
Tomorrow, Saint Valentine‘s Day, will probably be an especially busy day for all those partners who want to demonstrate their love by telling their loved ones, ‘I will always love you’ Maybe many of them will be recalling Whitney Houston’s song, too. I feel sorry she won’t be able to sing those beautiful lyrics with that powerful voice of hers again; neither will she hear somebody making that beautiful promise to her. How sad!
When we make a promise in English we use the Simple Future Tense, but this verbal form is also used for spontaneous decisions and predictions. Remember that the form ‘going to’ and the Present Continuous Tense are also used to express future.
