    My wife's on my back

    This is translated as "My wife is nagging me". Is it correct?

    ex) Eddie worked hard his whole life and, in the process, amassed a tidy retirement nest egg - several million dollars to be exact...At least twice a month, he calls his financial advisor and, in a tone of desperation, says, "Do I have enough money set aside to retire? My wife's on my back, wanting me to stop working, just enjoy our remaining years together, and live a happy life."...

    Re: My wife's on my back

    This reminds me of "get off my back".
