what would be the reason for someone moving to mars?

The same reason people moved out of Africa and across Asia, north east to the Urals and west to Europe. Because it is there.
Not everyone does this of course. Your people don't, which is why you depend on everyone else to provide FOR you instead of you providing for them.

I believe the movie "Elysium", starring Jodie Foster and Matt Damon, is a good representation of our near future. Except that there won't be any orbiting colony. Instead there will be a high tech, high IQ, high prosperity society forming on planet Mars, while the Earth wallows in squalor.
Popular Physicist Dr. Michio Kaku has said that Earth life is far too precious to risk leaving on just one planet. We need to become a two planet species, (or more), in order to ensure our survival.
Please read the excellent book, "The Case for Mars" by Dr. Robert Zubrin, PhD. It discusses all of the relevant issues.
In 1870, French Science Fiction Author Jules Verne predicted that in ~100years into the future from his time, the Americans would launch a space mission to the Moon. He said it would be launched from Florida, in a cone shaped spacecraft made of Aluminum, employing a crew of three, and returning to Earth at sea and be recovered by the US Navy. He even predicted that the astronauts would experience weightlessness en route on the mission. Essentially everyone in 1870 thought the idea was total poppycock and was ridiculous to even imagine. Even scientists of the time thought such a space mission was impossible and ridiculous, even if it was supposed to happen in ~1970.

There isn't ANY "reason". Reason suggests intelligent analysis and sensible decision-making. There is nothing intelligent about wanting to move to Mars. It is uninhabitable, and always will be.

Several reasons come to mind: stupidity; egocentricity; inability to cope with society; easily impressed by awful "documentaries" featuring cheesy presenters and overorchestrated music; incapability of weighing up risk versus reward; or just plain losers.

To get away from the total insanity on Earth. Unfortunately no one can do that by themselves and support from Earth.

From Blade Runner:
"A new life awaits you in the Off-world colonies. The chance to begin again in a golden land of opportunity and adventure."
I think some people might actually see it that way...
