If I'm married, filing jointly does that mean I'm a dependent on my husband's tax return?

No, it does not. A spouse can not ever be claimed as a dependent. Also, if you file jointly, the two of you file only one tax return and that one tax return has the income and expense for both of you. You can not each file a married filing jointly tax return. The two of you file only one return not one return each.
