Both my daughters live with men who hit them,degrade them and worse. They leave but keep going back. What am I supposed to do as a mom? I don't want to bury my daughters. And the abuse just keeps getting worse.

Not ok...obviously you feel the same. There are so many groups that are local and national that are excellent support systems. If any of your daughters need legal guidance and help with documents AlliedFamilyServices.org is one among many that can help at a low cost. Keep being involved and being someone they can talk to. :(

Like I said, they are adults and they need to make choices for themselves. I know it's hard seeing someone you love being treated that way but they need to make the decision to leave.

I have told them.They know my door is and always will be open.But I worry constantly about them.My kids are my life. When they go back to they're boyfriend. I have to go to their house to check on them and spend time with them and it makes me sick just being around their boyfriends. I pray for them every night.

Unless they are willing to leave for good then you can't do much.
Make sure they know that you are there whenever they need you though. Keep telling them that your door is always open if they need to get away and stay somewhere. Hopefully they will realize before it's too late.
