    omitted to provide for

    Dear teachers,

    What does 'omitted to provide for' mean in the sentence:

    'I have intentionally omitted to provide for my spouse and other heirs, including future spouses and children and other descendants now living and those hereafter born or adopted.'

    Thanks in advance,

    Re: omitted to provide for

    It means that the person chose not to leave any money to his or her family- I presume this comes from a will.
