    A resident

    Remember!

    Settlement means an area where a group of families live together

    Re: settled

    I don't think this is the case.
    The context is more or less like the following:
    "You didn't get the promotion because you are settled".
    "For 10 years you've been living with a man that you don't love because you're settled".

    Thanks.

    Re: settled

    You are comfortable in the situation and have no desire to change it.

    Right. A settled person has steady habits and a predictable routine.
