Hi everyone

I looked up how to translate "end up" in the sense of "to become" and the example given only seems to apply to where a verb can describe the state that is to arise.

end up - Wörterbuch Englisch-Deutsch - WordReference.com


Wenn wir diesen Weg weitergehen, werden wir uns wahrscheinlich verlaufen.

If I wanted to use an adjective to describe the new state, could I say something like the following?
- Ich werde ledig werden (I will end up single)
- Du könntest reich werden ( You could end up rich)
- Du könntest tot enden (You could end up dead)


Thanks
