    Exclamation Ever

    Hiya,

    Does this sentence sound right


    'We won't travel until all the problems are solved...if ever'


    Shall I say 'if they are ever solved'/'if they ever do' /if it happened.


    Does the sentence sound Ok with 'if ever'?


    Thank you

    For me, that is acceptable in informal English. In formal English, I would use "unless and until all the problems are solved".
