    'I love you and always will.'

    I know the correct way is:

    -"I love you and always will"

    but my question can we also say

    -"I love you and will always do."

    and what about this:
    "I am to blame for this fiasco." again I know that's the proper and correct way of saying it..

    but can we also say,
    "I am to be blame for this fiasco.." or "I am to be blamed for this fiasco."

    I'd really appreciate if a teacher could answer my qs.. I'm a stickler for grammar.
    Thanks..
    Ali.

    Re: 'I love you and always will.'

    1 Yes, you can, but it sounds much more natural without 'do'.
    2 I am to blame for this fiasco = I am responsible for it and accept it
    I am to be blame for this fiasco
    I am to be blamed for this fiasco- people will hold me responsible, but it could either be the case that I am responsible or, in most cases, that I feel I am innocent and being treated unfairly

    If you really want to use do. 'I love you and always will do.'
