I do not see anything from the few facts you have listed to suggest anything wrong here. Food stamps can be and are given to families, including families where one or both people are working.
I must say I hear a tone of anger that you think someone may be getting something for nothing. The truth is you do not know (you only suspect) that anything illegal is going on - or you would have given more specific facts in your post.
A suspicion is not enough to do anything with. My experience over many years is that there is ALWAYS more going on than everyone else knows about, because the people who need help - from Social Security, from welfare, or from the state - do not advertise their business or information for everyone else to see. I would just forget about it and leave these people alone.

There is no rule against receiving food stamp benefits while one is married. In fact, many married couples get food stamp benefits. Married couples must meet the income and household resource tests to qualify.
