They've lied to you. It depends on the size of the bond i.e. in a double bond they'll share 4, and in a triple they'll share 6. I sound like such a nerd :L At least I enjoy life :)

a covalent bond is a shared pair of electrons between two atoms. 1 electron comes from each atom.

however many it takes for the elements to have a full outer shell.

For example in water. Hydrogen only had 1 electron and needs two to make a full outer shell, so it shares 2 eletrons with oxygen. But oxygen had 6 electrons and needs 8 to make a full outer shell, so it shares 2 with 1 hydrogen atom and 2 with another. remember if a pair of electrons is shared then the outer shell only gains 1, it's simply sharing the other one.
