If the first part of a sentence is a question, followed by ", because..." and the explanation to why you asked the question, is it ended with a period, a question mark, or is that considered improper sentence structuring.

I.e. "Should I buckle my seat belt, because it is very uncomfortable to use"
"Morals are simply a limit to man's potential."~Myself

^ That's not really a proper sentence. The correct way to do it would be to split it up.

I.e. Should I buckle my seat belt? It is uncomfortable to use.

Or

Should I buckle my seat belt? I don't really want to because it's uncomfortable to use.
