Hollywood couple Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe jetted off to the Caribbean at the beginning of the month (MAR03) in a bid to save their rocky marriage.

The popular pair quit Tinseltown with daughter AVA after a string of problems led to a few personal difficulties, according to American tabloid NATIONAL ENQUIRER.

Those problems included months spent apart and house renovation headaches.

An insider says, "The truth is they are both committed to making their marriage work, even if there have been rocky patches.

"They really counted on this vacation to rekindle all the sparks and get their love back on track."
