당신 is usually not used. Unless you're looking for a fight.
But, 당신 can be referred to your spouse as well. So I don't think that this should be removed. And there a few more things that you need to know in using this word.
People who are learning here at Duolingo. :) Please take note that we just need to be careful in using 당신. It doesn't need to be removed from your dictionary.
In English it is normal to use pronouns rather than using the name of the person over and over again. But in Korean, you can use "you" by using the title of the person or the name of the person.
Example using name: 진수 씨 지금 뭐 하고 싶어요? (Jinsoo what do you want to do right now?) You indicate 씨 in every name to sound polite. And if you use this every time in every sentence to say "you", it's okay, it's normal in 한국어.
Example using title: 선생님 이거 뭐여요? ( Teacher, what is this?) There titles such as 아저씨, 아저마, 학생, 엄마, 아빠 etc.
If you don't know the position or title of the person: Omit the subject of your sentence.
I suggest you go learn more about this in "Talk to me in Korean" they have a lesson dedicated to the word 당신 and when and where to use it. I hope this helps!
