    How to use conjungtion "than"

    I just finished watch good movie "Letters to Juliet" I absolutely like it, If who just still in love I suggest to watch it.

    I donít know how your story ended,
    but if what you felt then was true love then itís never too late.
    If it was true then, why wouldnít it be true now?
    You need only the courage to follow your heart.


    This is the letters, juliet write back I think I quite know all of word talking about when I read all and guess it but for to sure I would like to know who to use conjungtion "than" and what does then is this sentense mean.

    This is the letter Juliet wrote back/responded. I think I quite understand all of the words/everything she is talking about when I read all, and guess it but to be sure I would like to know when to use the conjunction "than" and what "then" in this sentence means.
    I corrected and marked some of your mistakes.
    () means I'm not fully sure.
    / means either could possibly be used.

    In those sentences then refersto the past.
    What you felt then was true love.
    What you felt some years ago was true love.
    (That was one of many examples.)

    The other then is some kind of conclusion.
    If it was love then, then it is never too late.
    This is a logical conclusion.

    Than is a completely different word.
    It's better to find the true love late than never.
    Use than when you compare something.

    I love you more than he does.
    Finding the true love is more difficult than expected.


    I hope you understood most of the facts I said.
    If you have any further questions, just ask.

    Cheers!

    /A learner/

    I'll try to point to what is bothering me with this paragraph
    .

    I donít know how your story ended
    but if so (it is?) that (what) you felt(then) it was true love, then itís never too late to fall into.
    If it was true then (~ that time ~) why wouldnít it be true now? (this is not the second conditional)
    You need (only) the courage to follow your heart, only. (
    The all you need is the courage to follow your heart.)

    This is the letter, Juliet wrote back/responded. I think I (quite)fairly understand all (of) the words/everything she is talking about when I read (all, and guess) it but to be sure I would like to know when to use the conjunction "than" and what does the other word "then", in this sentence, mean(s)?

    Anyway, what I for sure know is that it will not be easy to correct the text one more time.
