    The business is in his name, so naturally people are going to refer to him as the “boss” if you will. But you’re both putting in an equal amount of work into it and the two of you know that it’s taking both of you to run the business so it’s most definitely belongs to the both of you. 

    But I really wouldn’t get too upset about the fact that sometimes he says “mine” or “I”. It’s a people nature thing. We’re naturally programmed to think about ourselves first – regardless of whatever the situation. As an example I often find myself saying or typing “well when I get married” instead of “when we get married” or “at my wedding” instead of “at our wedding”. So I wouldn’t worry about it.

    The only thing that worries me slightly from your post is the way that he seems to be making the decision about letting your license run out without telling you the specifics on why it’d be a good idea. I’d ask him exactly what the tax lady said and why it’d be better to let the license run out as opposed to keep it going continuously, etc. But otherwise I really wouldn’t worry about it. He’s including you in everything still (except this one point) and he’s still keen for the two of you to be business partners. Unless he starts planning gigs and going off to do them alone and taking all the credit for doing everything in the business I really wouldn’t stress about it. But that’s just what I think.
