ABSOLUTELY! I have 3 sons, ages 19, 21 & 28, and although my husband and I didn't really have marital problems over it, the stress the teen years have caused, has definitely made things less peaceful around here. I deal with most of the issues with kids, and there have been times when I'm either so edgy, or just plain overwhelmed that I would find I had no patience left for my husband, or just felt like I was ready to snap.
The little kid years are physically exhausting, but the teen years are mentally and emotionally draining. They are definitely the hardest of all. *hugs* to you momma, and try not to let it take a heavy toll on your marriage.
