    Unhappy Conjunctions

    I am looking for the conjunctions in these sentences:

    To get into the airport you have to check your bags then pass through security and only then may you enter your gate.

    First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage.


    In the first sentence, I have then, and only, then

    In the second sentence, I have then, then

    Is "first" a conjunction? Is through a conjunction.


    This is not homework. I am actually trying to grade student quizzes, and am ashamed that I don't know the answers.

    Re: Conjunctions

    First is an adverb and through is a preposition here.

    One can get into an airport without checking bags or passing through security. It is the gate area that is restricted.
