Valence bond theory basically states how atoms bond together through the combination of half filled orbitals to form hybrid orbitals which then create sigma and pi bonds.

Valence bond theory describes the electronic structure of molecules. The theory says that electrons fill the atomic orbitals of an atom within a molecule. It also states that the nucleus of one atom is attracted to the electrons of another atom.
