    Question Ever since my family members came to know of my interest in stickers,

    Hello,
    "Ever since my family members came to know of my interest in stickers, they will buy stickers for me whenever they come across nice ones. "
    Can we use 'ever since' along with the future tense or we only allow to use with present perfect?

    Thanks for your help.
    Is Come to know a phrasal verb?!
    I want to know is the following meaning of 'come to know' correct?! :
    Come to know (past: came to know) is a somewhat literary way of saying find out or learn (a fact), or become acquainted with (a person). Get to know (past: got to know) means become acquainted or better acquainted with (a person).
