Abstract. We prove that in three or higher dimensions, an isotropic, ferromagnetic, nearest-neighbor O(N) perturbation of a nematic liquid crystal model (also having isotropic, nearest-neighbor interactions) has an intermediate phase. In this intermediate phase, the liquid crystal order parameter is non-zero but the spontaneous magnetization is zero while at low temperatures, these systems exhibit magnetization.
