    Re: Answer plz.!!

    "Will" can be used in different senses; "would" sounds conditional and less certain:
    -(hearing a knock on the door) I'll get it.
    -The weather will be warm and sunny tomorrow. (weather forecast)
    -Tommy will talk back! ( talking about an irritating trait)
    -A:I'll lend him my car.
    B: I wouldn't do that. (i.e If i were you)

    Re: Answer plz.!!

    Will is certain:

    Morning will come.
    I will go to class.

    Would
    is different. We use it in several ways, including:

    1. To describe a past practice:


    -He would wait for her every day after school.
    -She would often wonder where all her money went.


    This means that they used to wait and wonder, but not anymore.

    2. To explain barriers to action:

    -I would climb the tree, but I'm wearing a new sweater.


    This tells you I will not climb the tree and explains why.

    -I would visit Africa if I had the money.


    This means I will not go to Africa unless I get some money.

    3. To affirm:

    -She would love to join you.

    This can mean one of two things:

    - that she accepts your invitation.
    - that she will accept if you invite her.

    Notice that there is no if or but in this example. That means there are no barriers to action.

    4. To request or offer an action:

    -Would you please pass the salt?
    -Would anyone like a cigar?


    Here we're requesting salt and offering cigars.

    Does that help? There are other ways to use would, but I think this is a start. Can anyone explain it more clearly?

    what If we say "he would be my husband".
    why we had used "WOULD" here?
    there is no such barrier in that!!
