Is using the term "Going steady" an older phrase?

I was watching an 80's sitcom and heard the boy ask the girl if she wanted to go steady. And I just realized I haven't heard that for a while

Yeah, I do not know when it fell out of popularity but at one time, probably before the 80's, it meant "monogamous relationship"

[@1202007,everyoneknows] Might have been a regional thing but yeah it was called "Going with someone" basically. And of course eventually "Going out with someone"

[@1202007,everyoneknows] lol I have heard people put it that way too. I live in Missouri. People might say "She is going with him"
