- TL;DR Summary
- The symmetry and two-spin state

Suppose that we have a system including two single (and identical) orbitals as shown in the attached image. Then, consider the states that we have two different spins on the two orbitals. It seems that because of the left right symmetry of the system the special part of teh wave function can not be asymmetric and so we can not have triplet (symmetric) spin wave function and only the singlet state is permitted. I would like to know if this reasoning is correct. Any help is appreciated.
