Muscular dystropy information required

My partner's brother has been diagnosed with muscular dystropy. Me or my family does not have this condition.  Im worried what if my partner develops muscular dystropy later in his life?  Is there any way to find out if he is a carrier? Any tests which can prove that he is normal?
