Divorce & Margarine consumption are apparently weirdly correlated

So apparently, a cheeky law student over at Harvard has identified a correlation between margarine consumption and the divorce rate in Maine. As consumption of margarine increases, divorce in Maine likewise goes up. There is therefore a directe correlation between the two variable. Does this mean that margarine consumption causes divorce in Maine? Not necessarily. But it sure does make for interesting conversation at your wine and cheese.
