A lot of evidence has recently accumulated that physical characteristics
of CP stars (delta m(1), Ca/Fe ratio, Li abundance, distribution of orbital
periods, v sin i, Delta (V1-G), magnetic field) depend on orbital period or
eccentricity. Consequently, the "tidal mixing + stabilization" hypothesis
has been formulated to account for such features and the "binarity x magnetism"
hypothesis of Abt & Snowden was reanalyzed. We conclude that all mentioned
characteristics and properties of CP stars, including even CP star magnetism,
may be affected or governed by binarity.
