couple with heart: woman, man
Like most person-related icons, the Couple of Man and Woman with Heart emoji offers five skin tone options. Apart from the default yellow hue, the heterosexual couple emoji offers mixed skin tones. With this, couples with mixed ethnicities can easily use an emoji that describes their simple yet loving relationship. After its release, this couple with heart emoji was used to describe not just heterosexual relationships but also non-binary partnerships.
Most versions of this emoji appear with the head to torso illustration of a man and a woman. The large heart in between the couple serves as the common detail among all renditions. To accommodate the variety of relationship definitions, emoji developers also dubbed the icon as the straight couple emoji.
Despite its simple representation, the couple with heart emoji sometimes held offensive messages online. To combat online trolls, emoji developers came up with the Couple with Heart Emoji that features partners with no definitive gender. Unfortunately, not all platforms got the memo and use the usually heterosexual emoji for the new couple icon.
To further emphasize loving couples online, you may compose combinations with this couple of man and woman with heart emoji or the Man and Woman Holding Hands emoji. For a more lovey-dovey approach, you may also add the Kiss emoji.
Couple With Heart: Woman, Man is a fully-qualified emoji as part of Unicode 6.0 which was introduced in 2010, and was added to Emoji 2.0.
