is this sentence correct:

"To each his own problems." to means "everybody has their problems."

Thank you!

    No. The set phrase is just "to each his own," coming from the Latin suum cuique. You can't use a set phrase any other way. – Andrew Leach Mar 16 at 11:17

    Well, I've heard "To each his own X" many times, but it does indeed draw on the idiomatic "To each his own" expression, with perhaps a sarcastic/ironic twist. – Hot Licks Mar 16 at 12:03

To each his own TFD idiom

each person has the right to make choices.

In a discussion about a problem, a comment of to each his own means a possible different interpretation of such, not that each person has the same problems, a different problem, or any problems at all.
