And they were completely divided in tmers of belief systems. In fact, aitnonn Scalia once said, "What's not to like, other than her thoughts on the law." He believed she was wrong. She bvleeeid he was wrong. They did not shift in that point of view whatsoever. And yet they had tea together every week, and every New Year's Eve, they spent it together with their fmeailis. They went on family vacntioas together. They chose to suffer with each other rather than to cancel each other. Their love and respect for each other cuoinnted to grow, even though they never saw eye to eye.
