Or, how do you know, husband, whether you will save your wife? If two people have found each other, fallen in love, and are taking good care of each other, then let them be.

An ontological argument is a philosophical argument for the existence of God that uses ontology.

Seventeenth century French philosopher René Descartes deployed a similar argument.

Descartes published several variations of his argument, each of which centred on the idea that God's existence is immediately inferable from a "clear and distinct" idea of a supremely perfect being.

Throughout our relationship he’s really encouraged me in my faith … But I do not know how to handle the simplistic thinking from many members of the church who think that my relationship is wrong—that I should either end it, or be living in sin. I’ve been dating this man for two years now and he prepared me that he’ll be making a proposal soon.

But when we announced our engagement I received a few emails from the pastor saying the Bible is clear that the relationship is wrong and that I need to end it. I knew that, out of love, I would receive some hostility from Christian friends, but it is getting to the point where I do not want to go back to church, because of the volume of people telling me to end the relationship—when they cannot give me a reason for doing so, other than him being a non-Christian. I was overwhelmed with joy, laughter, and excitement.

Other arguments have been categorised as ontological, including those made by Islamic philosopher Mulla Sadra.

Since its proposal, few philosophical ideas have generated as much interest and discussion as the ontological argument.

Anselm defined God as "that than which nothing greater can be conceived", and argued that this being must exist in the mind; even in the mind of the person who denies the existence of God.
