They got married a year later. The wedding took place in a small apartment, which became an inspiration for Wojciech Młynarski, the author of the text for “I like to go back to where I was”. The places described in the text are nothing more than the entrance to the premises, which for years was the first home of the young couple. However, the idyll in the Wodecki marriage did not last forever. The musician gained immense popularity, which made him see his family less and less. The artist’s partner took care of the children.

Zbigniew Wodecki’s career was gaining momentum year after year. Because of this, he was less and less at home. At one point, his own son did not recognize him.

According to them, Wodecki was an extremely sensitive father who always listened to them and tried to help as much as he could.

Despite the man’s frequent absences, his relationship continued to develop. The artist admitted in one of the conversations that long tours could even help in marriage. – Once, my wife and I came to the conclusion that thanks to the fact that I was absent so often, our relationship lasts so long – he confessed – If it wasn’t for my work mode, we would probably kill each other, because we have completely different characters – .

The composer believed that it was these differences that allowed him to create a successful relationship. According to Wodecki, couples composed of two artists have no chance of survival. Krystyna was a geologist by profession and she didn’t like flashes and show business. Despite good relations with his wife, the media often accused the musician of numerous affairs. But he denied them each time. – I did not have time for romance, because first of all I was shy and always embarrassed in dealing with women – admitted Wodecki – Besides, I was focused on making a career and earning a house – he said. Zbigniew Wodecki died in 2017 after a serious illness. He was 67 years old. He spent his last moments surrounded by his loved ones.
