Moving away from a gathering where inappropriate things are being discussed

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If your family always talk about inappropriate things, that are hurtful and immodest and you do not like the atmosphere, how should you be as a person in this situation? Is it necessary that you must stay in the room, even when you do not like what is being said? Since you have to interact with your family, how long do you have to stay with them if they sit together for hours on end, if you are in this situation and you have other work to do too?

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
