Can a join table hurt?

In a database I am creating, I want the option of being able to connect content in my DEMO:: table with other related TOPICS::. At this point, I really cannot see an actual need yet. However, I am imaging that it will become useful later. My question is if I make a join table to leave the option of having this many to many setup, could it be something that gives me a problem if never used? I am thinking if un-used the worst it will be is a more complex relation to get the same thing as a one to many would accomplish. Is my thinking correct? Thanks
