19. Lifestyle and choices

"Every resident has the right to have his or her lifestyle and choices respected."

You have the right to live your life in the manner you wish.

For example, no one can stop you from having a consensual romantic or sexual relationship if that is what you want.

The home should respect your personal preferences and habits.
