With military those things happen quickly because of the benifits and pay inceases that come with being married. It makes sense to get married if someone’s in the militaty. Maybe it wasnt a big thing for them and they will trow a big shindig later on

Assuming that you and your FI both have open lines of communication I’m assuming that he doesn’t know either. I’d wait till you guys have time to talk and bring it up. It isn’t uncommon with army/navy. My FI is in the Navy and many of his friends have gotten married quickly or in a spur of the moment because of benefits. 

I feel for your FI if he doesn’t know. It’s tough when someone who you feel close to does something so big and never tells you. Any chance the brother uses the term ‘wife’ although the person is actually a girlfriend?

As soon as you stated he was in the military it made sense. It happens quick in the military. No big deal. (:
