    Smile in spite of their different view/s on politics.

    John gets along with Peter in spite of their different view/s on politics.




    Should I use view or views in the above? Thanks.

    Thanks, Anglika.
    Is it your personal quirk or the right answer?

    Re: in spite of their different view/s on politics.

    I don't feel there is a "right" answer - but you have two people, so two views is likely.

    An alternative way of saying this is John gets along with Peter in spite of their differing view of politics.
