    omit 'to'

    Hello,

    1) All I want is provide for my children.

    2) The only thing I want to have is be able to protect you from him.

    3) All I will do is leave here.

    Could you please tell me whether we can omit 'to' or not?

    Thank you...

    No.

    No (and the sentence is not grammatically correct in other ways).

    3) All I will do is leave here.
    This is OK.

    Could you please tell me whether we can omit 'to' or not?
