German term or phrase: Wer ist in Ihrer Partnerschaft der Boss?
Wer ist in Ihrer Partnerschaft der Boss – er, Sie oder keiner von Ihnen beiden?

so what does 'er' stand for? The boss? since I don't see any other guy in the context. Then what's the meaning of this sentence?

English translation:Who is the boss in your partnership?
Explanation:
- you, him or neither of you?

You're right that the 'er' refers to your boss. I think it's asking who's in charge of the relationship and who's in control.
