Good Morning, Customer
If you were renting out the property, you would need separate bedrooms for children of different sexes, the municipalities require that. However, it it is for your own family's use, it is not a problem, although preferable that young adults, 12 years of age and over do not sleep in the same bedroom with someone of the opposite sex.

I think you possibly may have skipped over this part of my answer which appears above; I wrote the following:
"...However, if it is for your own family's use, it is not a problem, although preferable that young adults, 12 years of age and over do not sleep in the same bedroom with someone of the opposite sex.
As I stated above, there is no law prohibiting this within a family.
I hope this clarifies the answer.
