I remember when “family room”, was dropped because not everyone has a family.
Black in the 90’s we designed these two master bedroom houses because the gay market was huge. They sold like crazy.
What about the Master Bathroom?
Applying logic as per mortgage loans, it would be referred to as the “Banker’s Bedroom”. (THAT oughta go over good!)
Owner of the house, doling out the charm!
Nah, that doesn’t work.

Every other couple is “non traditional” as it is.
The only solution is to have a government mandate that all bedrooms must be of equal size, not just in a house, in every house.
