preposition " in spite of " + noun means " despite or although (without being affected or prevented by something) used to express the idea of contrast. eg. In spite of freezing temperature, we stayed out. We played football in spite of heavy rain. [ = although it was raining heavily]

"Spite" has to do with causing regret to another. "To spite someone" means to do something to cause them to regret. "In spite of" is used without the harsh meaning, and means something happened or was done sucessfully, regardless of (or even opposed to) the situation. Robert's explanation of "even though..." is pretty accurate. You're not actually causing regret to someone or something. The situation is not always negative, just opposite to what finally happened: "In spite of having lots of money, she didn't buy the dress."

It is like saying "even though..." Example: Original sentence: Even though the police man was shot, he continue to fight. With in spite of: In spite of being shot, the police man continued to fight.
