The Red sea is the result of a divergent boundary, while the Red Sea is not yet an ocean the process is very clearly the beginning of an Ocean.

The mid atlantic ridge, is a divergent boundary. The evidence of sea floor spreading is convincing that the ocean is spreading out in both direction. The theory is that North American and Europe were once connected. The divergent boundary is believed to be the origin of the Atlantic Ocean.

Divergent boundaries are the places where continents split and new oceans are formed.
