Mon mari nous rejoindra après s'être rasé

Mon mari nous rejoindra après s'être rasé

In this example the husband's action has not happened yet but is envisaged. So although the lesson notes talk about this construct referring to past actions, is that correct?

Bonjour Jennifer ! Yes, this sentence is correct: think of it as the action of "se raser" will be in the past of the moment we're referring to here (i.e. nous rejoindre). "Après" is always followed by actions that took place before the action of the main clause of the sentence :) I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !
Thank you. It is very helpful
