Correctly, or as correctly as we can?


The modern view of the chemical bond conceives of a region of high electron density between 2 positively charged nuclei such that internuclear repulsion is minimized, and a net attractive force results.

This description explains why chemical bonds are conceived to be a pair of electrons between the 2 bound nuclei.
