    Default for good and bad?

    Are sentences 1 and 2 correct:

    1-I am leaving this city, for good and bad.
    I am leaving this city, and that will have good and bad consequences.


    2-I am leaving this city, for good or bad.
    I am leaving this city, and that may have good or bad consequences.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    I am leaving this city, and that will have good and bad consequences.


    2-I am leaving this city, for good or bad. With the use of "or", my understanding would be that I am leaving regardless of what may happen.
    I am leaving this city, and that may have good or bad consequences. Yes.
