    One of the meanings of "since" is very similar to the meaning of "because." However, there are some differences in the ways the two words are used, which are very hard to explain to a non-native speaker. So you should probably use "because" until you become familiar with the differences.

    Preposition
    1.From that time
    "happy since getting married"
    Conjuction
    1.For the reason that; on account of

    Adverb
    1.In the past

    Becuase

    1.For the reason that; on account of
    I couldn't come because I was ill"
