If you leave all of your assets to your spouse, those assets then belong to your spouse.  He or she can do with them whatever they wish.  If they remarry their new husband/wife may well have a claim against those assets on a divorce or on the death of your spouse.  This may happen despite the best efforts of your spouse to provide for your children in their own Will.  There are ways that you can guard against this while still looking after your spouse for the rest of his/her lifetime after your death.
