Type the Marriage Symbol ⚭  into Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint or Outlook.  Both in Office for Windows and Office for Mac.

How Marriage Symbol ⚭ looks in different fonts.

Marriage Symbol ⚭ looks quite consistent across the common Office fonts. Most fonts don’t have the symbol so Word auto-switches to Segoe UI Symbol font.  See Word’s symbol substitution, the good and the bad

In Windows there are several shortcuts to enter the Marriage Symbol ⚭  character into any program, but they use a numeric keypad, not the number row above the letters.

Alt + 9901  

Window 10 Emoji Panel

The Windows 10 Emoji Panel doesn’t seem to have the marriage symbol.  Use Win + . (period/fullstop) to open the panel but there’s no search for symbols (only emoji) so it’s hard to be sure.

See Emoji Panel is part of Windows 10 that totally sucks

The Windows Character Map accessory in all Windows releases

Character Map has a search feature, something missing from the Insert | Symbol in Office.
