In brief: To prevent pregnancy

If you cannot utilize other methods of birth control and feel you have completed your family.
Tubal ligation does not prevent venereal disease. If you are in a monogamous relationship have your partner consider a vasectomy instead. If future children are something you are considering both can be reversed - but with different degrees of success.

Ask about Essure hysteroscopic permanent sterilization also since this can be done in the office with minimal down time. Better success rates too.
