One of my students in the social science research methods decided to 
look at coffee and satisfaction with relationships with significant 
others in the student survey project for the class.  Just went through 
the analysis and there are some interesting results.
Sixty-nine percent of the coffee drinkers are satisfied with their 
relationship compared with 46% of those who do not drink coffee.  When 
we look at people who drink cokes, 53% of coke drinkers are satisfied 
compared with 62% of those who do not drink cokes.  She also looked at  
tea drinking.  Among tea drinkers 55% are satisfied with their 
relationship compared to 57% of those who don't drink tea.
The statistical relationship between coffee and satisfaction with the 
relationship is the only one that is significant at the .05 level.   In 
short, current data from Auburn students seems to replicate the 
findings in the 1976 health interview data.  Combining the findings, it 
suggests that drinking coffee leads to more satisfying and longer 
lasting relationships.  And the effect seems to be due to something 
besides caffeine.

What determines if it "leads to" more satisfying relationships, rather 
than "is associated with" that kind of relationship?

I don't have data on partners so I cannot tell from the data.  However, 
research consistently shows that couples who differ on important issues 
tend to seperate.

Or, that people in satisfying and longer lasting
relationships tend to drink more coffee.

Fresh coffee when I make it, and no argument about which bean or brewing 
method.  She gets hot chocolate.  (J.W. -- try making her some hot 
chocolate, and don't forget the little marshmallows)
