If I had to brainstorm this for a hypothetical person it might be: I'm sad because...

-I'd be missing my own appointments (worried about how I'd cope)
-I'm not having a wedding of my own (feelings about marriage)(or depending on age parallels, if this woman is getting married, why have I not reached the same age-expectations? What does that say about me?)
-It'd be like evidence that someone else is important to my T
-It might trigger me to mourn the absence of warm, and fuzzy images from my own present/past (ie. the image of a "perfect father" giving away his "happy, beautiful daughter")
-It could highlight for me that I'M not his daughter (or his wife)or that I don't have a child of my own
-It could even just stimulate my own longing for happiness /celebration

And there's probably a bunch of others. It makes sense that such good news could cause a different reaction.

Did this happen to you? (you don't have to say)
