Is that the intednded > behavior? First: I suggest you select your nb and click on menu Window -> Show toolbar so you can see/set clearly the style of a cell. Second: if you wish to collect the sections under a higher cell, you must first create the cell (above the 2 sections). This cell should have a higher hierarchy , say subsubtitle or higher (look in the drop down menu that you got with the first step. So : click above the 2 sections, select the style from the drop down menu and create a higher cell. Now you can use ctrl-G selecting the higher cell and the 2 sections. I also find useful most of the time to select Cell -> Grouping -> Automatic Grouping from the main menu bar. In this way the Grouping is done by Mathematica for you (a higher cell will group with the lower ones below).
