Can you try to set validation group and see ?
<asp:TextBox ID="tbQuestion" runat="server" Width="434px"></asp:TextBox><br />
<asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="vQuestion" ControlToValidate="tbQuestion" Font-Names="Arial"
 Font-Size="9" runat="server" ValidationGroup="Q"> Question is required!
<asp:Button runat="server" Text="Proceed" ValidationGroup="Q"/>

Open in new window

That code by itself is ok. I think there is 'something' (code/control) that is causing the validation to take place.
i agree with robasta

try using validation group
