    use “even if "to express the future.

    Here are three sentences with "even if". But what time does the action happen?

    Even if he go to the U.S.A, his wife is still in England now.(This means the man will go to the U.S.A, right?)

    Even if he went to the U.S.A, his wife is still in England now.(This means the man has already gone to the U.S.A.,right?)

    On July,1st,1994 , even if he went to the U.S.A, his wife still stayed in England.(here plus "1994" to refer the old time, it means at that time the man would go to the U.S.A, but his wife was still in England,right?)

    Thanks so much!

    Re: use “even if "to express the future.

    You are not using even if correctly. Do you mean even though?
