Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres have apparently hit some snags in their marriage, but none that can't be worked out. In fact, sources close to the couple believe they may even renew their wedding vows some time in August. It seems an argument the couple had sent Portia packing--to a rehab facility for treatment of alcohol and drug problems. The former Ally McBeal actress suffered from an eating disorder in the past as well.

A source close to the couple says Portia de Rossi is "good at seeking help when she needs to."

''They've worked out difficulties in the past, and no doubt they're trying to work out any problems right now.''

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi have bought and renovated properties since before their marriage. It seems the argument that sent her packing for rehab stemmed from her belief that she had endured most of the work involved in their most recent project alone. The couple recently resold the home for a $15 million profit as seen in the video clip above.

''At times Portia felt overwhelmed at all that goes into redoing a house and moving to another, no matter how lucrative it may be," the source claims. ''She felt like she was doing everything herself and needed some downtime.''

Friends of both Portia and Ellen have lots of confidence in their marriage, however, and believe that the couple will continue to work things out. Next month the pair will celebrate their sixth wedding anniversary and that's when it's expected they might renew their wedding vows. Both Ellen and Portia were excited to tie the knot when it became legal for same sex couples in California to do so.

"They both love to celebrate special occasions and holidays, and their wedding anniversary is no different. They usually celebrate with a big party and invite a lot of friends. They really are a lovely couple. They enjoy being married, and it shows," the source adds.

Portia de Rossi is clearly out of rehab now. The couple was spotted furniture shopping in New York in recent days.

Do you think Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres are in their marriage 'til death do them part? Will they work out these issues and put the pieces of their marriage solidly back together again?
