Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are allegedly undergoing marriage counseling. The two are apparently trying various methods to fix their love life.

The couple have been plagued by reports claiming that they are breaking up. A source told Life & Style magazine: "Ellen has been in counseling, both solo and with Portia. Part of their therapy is to go on more date nights. That's why they've been seen out and about more together lately."

"It's all about spending quality time together, but still giving each other space during the workday," the insider added.

"Ellen and Portia had been fighting more than ever. Portia was frustrated because she was spending a lot of time on Ellen's talk show set or sitting at home, waiting for Ellen to spend time with her," the source continued. "Ellen hates that. She never wants people at work to know about her personal problems. It was a huge wake-up call for her."

Previously, DeGeneres had gushed about Rossi. She told People: "I'm grateful for everything. I'm grateful for my health, and I'm so grateful for the love in my life. Because not everybody finds that. Not everybody finds that best friend."

"Portia and I constantly say to each other, 'We are so lucky.' Sometimes it's lying in bed at night before I go to sleep, and I just say thank you to whatever, whoever is out there. I've gotten to a place where I really am just settled. Really. I know that I'm not going anywhere. She's not going anywhere. I'm not saying the relationship took a while; I'm saying in my life, it took a while to find this," she added.
