When the atoms are close together, what is the valid description of the spatial wavefunction for the two electrons?

Ψ(1,2) = ψA(2)ψB(1)

What is the better description of the molecule when two outcomes are equally probable in quantum mechanics?

Ψ(1,2) = ψA(1)ψB(2) ± ψA(2)ψB(1)

Which combination of the linear combinations Ψ(1,2) = ψA(1)ψB(2) ± ψA(2)ψB(1) has lower energy?
