please can you help me to translate this to Arabic

" Hazem had put a spanner in the marital works "

ممكن اقول " عقد حازم الامور الزوجية" ؟

    Using an equivalent Arabic idiom -- وضع العقدة في المنشار -- perhaps you could say something like:

    أما الأمور الزوجية فوضع حازم العقدة في المنشار

    I thought about trying to incorporate marriage into the expression, in a figurative sense, but I do not know if it works:

    وضع حازم العقدة في منشار الزواج
