"Fine, then", "That's it, then", Let's go, then" etc, do we need a comma before "then"?

  • It's a matter of style. You don't have to have a comma, but one is commonly used. Commented Sep 6, 2018 at 18:28

The word then usually relates to time. It is most commonly used as an adverb. It has the following meaning:

As a consequence or in that case.

If that's how you feel, let it go then.

So there's no need for a comma there.
