reconciled

If something is considered reconciled, then it has been settled. A reconciled couple has worked out their differences, and a reconciled bank transaction means that it has been cleared.

The adjective reconciled is from the verb reconcile, which is from the Latin root words re, meaning "again," and concilare, meaning "to make friendly." You can remember this if you think of a reconciled couple as once again being friendly to each other after a break up.
