Chris Martin, 37 and Gwyneth Paltrow, 41, are said to have put their divorce plans on rest and are now trying to 'recouple', reported Female First.
"They may have consciously uncoupled a few months ago but they seem to be recoupling now. No one will be surprised if they get back together," a friend said.
Some say the separation announcement relieved the pressure on the couple.
"It's true they had problems but in the weirdest way this 'conscious uncoupling' situation has relieved the pressure on them.
"Gwyneth had ground rules about not immediately dating, respecting each other, keeping things happy for their two children and communicating throughout but it seems to have acted as a wake-up call," the friend=added.
"Chris still lives with her, they are amazingly lovey-dovey together and Gwyneth still wears her wedding ring," the friend said.
Martin was reportedly protective of Paltrow, when the news of their split came out and stood by her during that time.
"Chris also felt super-protective about the flak and criticism levelled at Gwyn when it came out. He felt it was unfair and uncalled for and he stepped in to make her feel better," a source said.
