How do covalent bonds dissolve in water? Give example

Covalent molecules are attracted to each other by various intermolecular forces such as H-bonds, dipole-dipole forces, and London dispersion forces. Water molecules are attracted to each other by strong H-bonds. Sugar and ethanol are covalent compounds that are soluble in water, because they contain O-H groups that can H-bond to the water. Covalent compounds are soluble but not covalent bonds.
