Dont know for sure but probably that that relationship is the ONLY relationship there is. IE that there is no third variable effecting the relationship.

Is it when there's a strong correlation between two variables, meaning one affects the other?!

For Spearmans" rank correlation, a valid relationship should be the fact that the two variables are not Normal distributed. That is my guess..
