    for good

    hi,
    does 'for good' means completely?
    'Their relationship finished for good.'
    can we use it in a negative sentence? 'Their relationship didn't finish for good.'

    For good = permanently, forever
    Therefore, your sentence could work if they didn't finish it permanently, but it's likely that you'd say it a different way.
