Hello: Is okay to say "Person A is in hardship" and/or "Person A has hardship"? I made them up. Thanks!

    "Person A is going through hard times." is good. You can't say "Persona A has hardship" but you might be able to say "Person A is in hardship." It's just a touch unfulfilling without an adjective, in my opinion: "He is in serious hardship," or "He is in considerable hardship" seem better to me. But "in hardship" is legal.
