Why does my return shrink significantly after I add my spouse's information?

I'm filing a joint return with my common-law partner who has the higher income. I put my information in first and it calculated that I'd have a substantial return. Then I put his info in and my return has shrunk to almost nothing while his return is quite substantial. Why is his return so much larger than mine when mine was large without his info?
