Because Hades thought she was beautiful so he went to go ask Zeus and Zeus said yes

As I understand it Hades had the ground swallow her up one day and bring her to the underworld or something like that (kidnapping). While she was captive Hades gave her some pomegranate seeds to eat. Something about this act meant a binding marriage that she was tricked into. Her mother Ceres was not happy about the disappearance of her daughter one bit.
