So this guy friend who is in the military wants to marry my friend. But they are doing it to receive money and benefits. He has been in the military for 8 years now. I guess my question is this normal? I feel sorry for her and I worry about her. They are staying together as friends but marry for the benefits. How would there family take it? Has anyone in the military done this before?

There are a LOT of people that treat marriage as a business transaction. Rich families marry their kids, even here in America, to "combine and fortifiy' two rich families and then combine businesses. Lots of people get married to have medical benefits, get more welfare, tax purposes.
In the military you will get housing allowance unless you qualify for on base housing, extra clothing allowance, allowance for kids, it can be worth a lot of money. I never knew anyone that did it because I wasn't in the military long enough. I wish I had stayed in.1
