Probably: You should be symptomatic if you have had chlamydia for that long, although a significant number of people may be asymptomatic. If you not had sex with anyone else, then my bet would be on your partner having sex with someone else and getting infected that way. In either case, both of you should be treated as well as the other person involved.

Both possible: Both are possible. It is hard to say how long an infection has been there and how long it went unnoticed. It is important that both of you get treated to keep from passing back and forth. Also request and HIV and syphilis test.
