Suppose I want to write a sentence:
Why not a girl or woman? Because they are too emotional.
Is this a grammatically correct way to write it. The part "Because I have to study" is not a complete sentence so am i supposed to add a hyphen??? I totally made this sentence up just to get an idea of the grammatical concept.

Informally, you're right.
However, in formal English, you'd need to say: Girls and women are too emotional.

Both parts that you have written are fragments. Simply putting them together won't solve anything.
The incompleteness of the meaning of the first part, though, makes it difficult to tell you what to do with this, though. To what is "Why not a girl or woman?" referring?
