You should pay the charges you made on the account (because even if you are not the "responsible party" you would be unjustly enriched by refusing to pay). But you are under no obligation to pay the remainder. Make it clear which items you are paying off and that once those are paid off, you will consider any future calls harassment (cut up the credit card with your name on it and return it. You can also return his credit card.)

If you are planning to be together later, his not paying his credit card will be a problem for his credit. And it might be a problem for yours until or unless the "who's really responsible?" question gets resolved.

Check your state laws for how credit cards and unsecured debt is treated.
