What was or is your incentive for marrying?

Was/is it: 

1: primarily sexual

2: desire of wanting to create a family

3:  combination of the two

I feel like for the older generation would be more inclined to number 1 , while the current generation would be more inclined to number 2.

The first incentive was religious. It is a sunnah of the Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) and there are famous narrations stating that marriage is half of faith. 

The other points you mentioned are also contributing factors, although I disagree with your assumption that the older generations married for sex while younger ones marry for family.

Yes, I meant the opposite. Didn't proofread. I don't think I can edit it now.
