Number of covalent bonds in Sulfur

How many covalent bonds are there in Sulfur?


Not too many people know that Sulfur forms one covalent bond with itself because it has 6 electrons in its outer valence shell.  This is the main reason while when putting two atoms of Sulfer together they share two pairs of electrons to achieve a full valence shell.  The main idea is that the full valence shell contains 8 electrons.  The main idea is that Sulfer does not form a covalent bond.  On the contrary, it forms a double covalent bond with itself.
