They: Two people? 3, 4, 5, more? An entire community, nationality, race? Did the happiness result lead directly to their sadness? Does happiness correlate directly to sadness, ie the greater the happiness, the greater the grief?

WAG: They were parents happy to have children, and there was some tragedy involving the children?

Was the glass deliberately broken? Is a wedding tradition relevant, such as the Jewish tradition of stepping on a glass for good luck? (Usually, it's placed under a napkin to avoid shards flying everywhere.)
