Homework Help: chemistry

Posted by mohit on Wednesday, February 10, 2010 at 5:20am.

I want to have a deep insigth to my problem i.e. I know that bonds between atoms(of different or same elements)to be formed are based on no. of electrons less in octet or duplet(say O2, each O atom has two electrons less in octet thus forms two bonds).But why bonds between e^- & e^- are formed to complete the octet even though they have same sign so must repel & not form a bond?
