Snipes v. Snipes Where (1) the husband does not dispute he was using narcotic drugs prescribed by his physician, (2) the wife offered uncontradicted testimony that the husband was frequently intoxicated because of the medication, (3) the wife observed that the husband “took too much” of the medication for a period much longer than needed to recuperate from his surgeries and would sometimes “grab a handful of pills” when he got aggravated or mad, and (4) the wife testified that the parties had a good marriage in prior years and she separated from the husband because he “had become addicted to prescription medicine,” we affirm the family court’s grant of a divorce to the wife on the ground of habitual drunkenness.
