Troubled couple Hilary Swank and Chad Lowe are giving their marriage another chance because they can't decide how to divide up their pets.
The couple owns parrots, dogs, a cat and a rabbit and couldn't bear to live without the menagerie, and that fact has prompted the pair to rework their marriage.
A family source says, "Hilary and Chad realized how much they loved each other when they spent time together with their pets. ... They are one big happy family and don't want to break it up."
The couple split last year and officially separated just after the New Year, but they've recently been spotted together trying to patch up their differences.
