The term "cross-examination" is used to describe the "interrogatório" common in the courtroom.  In other words, it is a very unpleasant experience. 

The daughter comes home at three in the morning, and her parents ask where she has been.  She replies, "I have been out.  I will not be cross-examined.  You don't trust me!"

"To weather" is something like "aguentar", "resistir" or "sobreviver".   The house weathered the storm.  Their marriage weathered many bitter arguments.
