Hello, I will try to help you. Please remember I just report or interpret the law, so the outcome may not be what you hoped for. If you upload the agreement I can take a look at it in the morning if that works for you. I am calling it a night now.
You have the right, without the approval of your partner, as a partner to transfer your interest in the profits and losses of the partnership and the right to receive partnership distributions. Utah statute 48-1b-502. However, you cannot transfer any management interest in the partnership. This means the person to whom you transfer your interest has no voice in how the partnership is run. If they want to be able to excerecise the same rights you have in running the partnership, your partner has to agree to the transfer. Your partnership agreement has no provision governing a sale of the pertnership interest so it is govered by Utah law.
If I have answered all your questions, please rate my answer excellent as that is how I am compensated. If you have more questions, please let me know. If the answer was especially helpful you can provide a bonus.
