Ironically, it was something he had given her that helped her escape.
Michelina Lewandowska and Marcin Kasprzak met in their native Poland in 2005. A year later, Marcin proposed and they moved to England to start a life together. Once Michelina became pregnant in 2008, the relationship began to go south. Eventually, they decided to call off their engagement but remained a couple.
Michelina continued to wear her engagement ring; she loved Marcin and was hopeful they would work things out. Unfortunately, that was not the case.
By 2011, things had only gotten worse; it was clear Marcin was not interested in mending their broken relationship. Eventually, Michelina told him she was unhappy; she wanted to move back home to Poland with their son Jakub, who was now 3-years-old. Marcin decided he would rather his son grow up without a mother.
