And what about "plighted"? For years I have heard the phrase "plighted troth" and never asked myself what it meant. According to my unabridged dictionary, to plight is to pledge, to engage, or to make subject to forfeiture. It gives the example "plighted bride." So there you have it.

Interestingly, it says that "plight" is never applied to money or property.
