    I am a little confused .... Do you have two extra mouths to feed, and soon to be 4 or more? Or, do you have 4 extra mouths to feed, and soon to be 6 or more?
    If it is only your daughters having moved back in, I would tell them it is time to file for divorce, or go home to your husbands. I would tell them I would support and assist them only if they shed the dead wood and sit down with you and your wife to figure a plan for the future, because, sure as heaven and hell, the two daughters aren't going to be allowed to lay around your house like welfare queens. Some sort of schooling for decent job or useable skill post SHTF should be in order. After delivery, they could switch off on the baby care duties between themselves and at least work or school part time. You raised these ladies, ..... they should have some of your work ethic and values ingrained. If they don't you are fighting an uphill mountain of a battle, and some of the blame lays at your feet. I shouldn't need to belabor this. Your girls are family, their worthless hubands are not. They made a bed. Now do they lay in it or come home. I got pushed out of the nest at 17 and went into the service. My stepsisters knew their walking papers would arrive at 21 years of age. They made their way as well.
    Pray on it, and then do what you believe is right, and stick to your guns. It's your house, and your rules! Buck up man.
