In her second year, she gave birth to a daughter. “He’s a nice guy, he gave me a fantastic child, but we weren’t meant for each other. He said I was immature and he was right. At first, I really liked being loved, desired and decorated, but over time it started to bore me. This was not my world at all. When Marysia was four years old, I gave myself two more years,” she admitted in an interview.
The director also admitted that she did not give up on her marriage in an instant. For two years, she and her husband tried to fight for this relationship. However, it didn’t work out. “I decided that if nothing clicked back in that time, I would leave. It didn’t click, although we underwent various therapies along the way, including with Jacek Santorski. Exactly on the day two years passed since my decision, I left my wedding ring on the table and I left the house with Marysia by the hand. To my mother and father. I worked as a journalist, I had something to live on. I lived with my parents for a while, but then I rented an apartment,” recalled Kinga Dębska. “When I left the house with Marysia by the hand, I felt excited that my life was starting again. I don’t know what will happen, but I know that I definitely did the right thing,” she added.
