When in future progress tense

Mary will be living in Texas.

Mary's husband will be returning from his job in South America.

Use when to conbin two sentences.

When Mary is living in Texas, her husband will be returning from his job in South

America.

Is it correct or not?

Please explain "return from" for me.

Thanks.

Update:

It is a question from my grammar exam.

    後面一句表示條件,當她的丈夫從南非回來,所以用

    when 連接,再刪去重複的部分(will be)將returning

    改為動詞原型即可。如下所示:

    Mary will be living in Texas when her husband return from his job in South America.

    不好意思,是南美洲不是南非。

    return from 意指 從某某地方回來

    本文所指的是她丈夫從南美洲工作告一段落,回到

    她要住的地方(德州)。

    I think You should use"and" to combine these two sentences. It's more correct. It is weird to use "when".

    Mary is living in Texas and her husband will be returning from his job in South America.

    "return" means "come back" .

    把引號拿掉...=.= 不然會出現其它東西..
