Maybe the bedroom represents the most interesting and vital part of the married couple's / family life?
No furniture, the room is empty and the room is for single person. The monk asked confirmation if the room is bedroom and then established the portable small buddha shrine and start the ceremony in the bedroom. AFAIK, if the house has more space like other room than bedroom then it's more respectful and appropriate in terms of Buddhist ceremony to be conducted in other room such as bedrooom or bathroom? There must be a reason why bedroom is better compare to other room. He just said it's a good spot but didn't mention why.
Lay people although not married are not living a celibate life, just relate this to the matter above and the reason or logic behind this why it's a good spot?
