This is an interesting suggestion..

All these years, without knowing why, I was under the impression that
{ruS} could apply only to "bonds of the chemical kind" e.g. bonds
between atoms.

But after reading the paq'batlh examples, I realize that perhaps the
word {ruS} *could* be used to describe the bond existing between a man
and a woman, in a sentimental/sexual relationship.

Let alone the fact, that in greek, one of the two words used to say
"relationship", is the exact greek translation of the english word
"bond".

So, seemingly/apparently, as our beloved type-6 verb suffix would say,
everything fits together rather nicely..
