Why it is grammatical to say yīnwéi... suǒyǐ (因為…所以) in Chinese, yet such usage is ungrammatical in English?

English has a clear distinction between main clause and subordinate clauses. In a full sentence, conjunctions are needed to connect main and subordinate clauses. However, Chinese does not need to differentiate main with subordinate.
