Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are taking steps towards salvaging their broken marriage.
Following months of divorce rumors, the couple was spotted sharing some PDA in L.A. last week. Does this mean the impending divorce has been avoided?
According to the International Business Times, the stars were seen spending some time with their family in Los Angeles. Apparently, the family time helped Pitt and Jolie decide that their marriage was worth saving, at least for now.
"This was a couple that was on the brink of divorce just a few weeks ago. But over the course of the week surrounding the Fourth of July, Brad and Angie fell back in love," an inside source explained.
At the same time, Enstarz reports that Pitt and Jolie aren't out of the woods yet. They are clearly working out their marital problems, but that doesn't mean the process is going to be easy. In fact, the source added that they have a lot of hurdles to overcome in the coming months if they want to avoid a nasty split.
"Even though Brad and Angelina have come to a place of great understanding, they still have a long way to go to overcome their many problems," the insider shared. "They've taken a very positive step toward a future together and making their marriage better, but there's still a lot to work through."
Of course, Gossip Cop is reporting that Pitt and Jolie never had marital problems to begin with. Apparently, the recent photos only confirm that their relationship is better than ever and not headed for a potential breakup.
Unfortunately, neither Pitt nor Jolie has discussed the reports surrounding their marriage, making it even more difficult to discern fact from fiction.
According to the Parent Herald, the two stars have battled divorce rumors over the past few months. While reports swirled about a nasty custody battle over their six children, an insider revealed that their fights have gotten progressively worse.
"[Pitt and Jolie] have been fighting and spending time apart, and things had gotten so bad recently that friends believed they were headed for divorce," the source stated.
There are several reasons why Jolie and Pitt can't seem to get along anymore. For starters, rumors indicate that Jolie is jealous because Pitt has been spending time with his co-star Marion Cotillard. The two are currently working on a movie in Paris, France, and Jolie is worried that Pitt is getting too close to Cotillard.
As fans will recall, Brad Pitt met Jolie on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Their on-screen relationship eventually turned into a real-life romance and marriage. Is Jolie worried that the same thing will happen between Pitt and Cotillard?
At the same time, Jolie's health problems are also plaguing the relationship. Apparently, Pitt is tired of dealing with the actress' eating disorder and is looking for a way out as soon as possible.
That being said, the latest photos indicate that Pitt and Jolie are doing a lot better than previously thought.
The pair was photographed taking their kids to Jamba Juice in L.A. While waiting in line, the two cuddled and looked more than happy to be together. Is this clear evidence that a divorce has been avoided?
For now, it appears as though Pitt and Jolie's marriage is still on, despite the multitude of divorce rumors. Until more information is released, fans can at least rest assured that Jolie and Pitt are on the right track to save their marriage.
Apart from the Jamba Juice outing, fans also spotted Jolie and Pitt celebrating their twins' birthdays at the Griddle Cafe.
