You are an inactive carrier which is good news. You will also need ongoing monitoring to be certain that your HBV status does not change.
Your partner should be tested for hepatitis B and if negative, should be vaccinated. After vaccination, your partner should have testing for hepatitis B surface antibodies to be certain the vaccine worked.
