Separate Bedrooms Anyone?

According to a National Association survey of Home Builders, in eight years more than half of custom built homes in the US will feature not one, but two master bedroom suites.

Implications - According to Stephanie Coontz, a families expert, there are couples out there, particularly in the US, that are “confident enough that they have a nice marriage, but they don’t particularly like sleeping in the same room.” She goes on to comment on how there is probably nothing wrong with their sex lives. In order for the couples to avoid feeling embarrassed about their separate sleeping quarters, builders have taken to calling the second master bedroom suites as "flex suites."
