    * Not a teacher

    fivejedjon: Probably the interpretation.

    leonardoatt: We need more context to give you a proper interpretation. Or, at least, I need.

    Re: settled then?

    "It's settled then" -- We have reached an agreement/decision. (Or, others have reached an agreement/made a decision and we will abide by it.)

    It could be deciding where you'll go for lunch or what movie to see. It could be as important as calling off a wedding or getting divorced.

    It's settled, then. We'll meet at 7:50 outside the theather and we'll watch the 8:00 show of Harry Potter.

    It's settled, then. I'll see if I can live with my brother for a while, and I'll start moving my stuff out tomorrow.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Okay. Here is a small piece of talking:
    A:Will you join us for dinner today?
    B:Sure,count me in.
    A:It's settled then.

    Now what?

    My response did not answer that for you?
