    Will always be or always will be?

    Which of these two sentences is grammatically correct?
    1- It is free and will always be
    2- It is free and always will be

    Thanks,

    Thanks,
    They're both correct. 2 would be more common I think. But it depends on the stress (on 'always' in 1. and 'will' in 2)
    If you add another 'free', I'd use 1. "It is free, and it will always be free". They could both sound incomplete with another "it".

    To be grammatically correct they would need to end with full stops.
