Some speculate on the status of the financially Royal couple. According to ValleyWag Gawker:
They are tech's biggest, newest philanthropic force, and it looks like their marriage has been disrupted.
It was thought to be strange when Mr. Andreessen showed up to this week's Sun Valley media conclave without his wife. Because it heavily encourages moguls to attend with their spouses, many couldn't understand why he arrived without wife Laura.
2. Laura is Said to Have Moved Out Two Months Ago, But Twitter Proves Otherwise
#ImAttractedTo my ridiculously hot, brilliant & philanthropic husband! I love him endlessly for supporting my life's purpose: philanthropy!

Just yesterday, Mrs. Arrillaga-Andreessen tweeted such a lovely and endearing tweet about her husband, along with how supportive he is. If she left him, why would she be writing that she loves him 'endlessly'? Any takers on this one?
3. Ms. Arrillaga-Andreessen Is as Charitable as They Come
To make the greatest impact, we must put our minds to work as well as our hearts. #WHYiGIVE

Some of the awards she has earned on behalf of her amazing efforts include the Global Citizen Award, World Affairs Council Outstanding Silicon Valley Philanthropist Award, the President's Award for Volunteer Service, and the Silicon Valley Philanthropist of the Year Award. But, that's not even close to the amount of work Laura does for those in need.
She's advised Laurene Powell Jobs, Meg Whitman, and more recently, helped set up the Zuckerbergs' $100 million donation to the Newark public school system.
That's right. Laura gives Facebook's Zuckerberg financial advice. What does that tell you? Smart lady. Definitely a good catch for any husband.
4. There is Questioning if Laura Will Remain President of the Marc and Laura Andreessen Foundation
Laura is Chairman, President, Volunteer, Director, you name it, to dozens of organizations. Currently, she is President of the Marc and Laura Andreessen Foundation. Clearly, this is an organization belonging to her husband and herself. What will happen if the couple splits up?
5. Laura's Husband is Ignoring Questions About Their Relationship
Apparently, writer Sam Biddle questioned the mogul via Facebook to see if the couple was still together. Additionally, Biddle know for a fact that his unanswered questions were viewed by Marc Andreessen.
I messaged Marc asking about his marital disintegration back in May when I first heard of it, but haven't had any reply since—and because Facebook is so wonderfully creepy these days, I know he saw the message. Similar inquiries to Arrillaga-Andreessen offices were not acknowledged.
