Hi Ulfat ,
With the 'futur antérieur' the context is important ...
Ils auront été ensemble = They will have been happy together
For instance if you said:
"Dans leurs vieux jours ils pourront se rendre compte qu'ils auront été heureux ensemble" , indicating clearly that the action will be completed in the future...Looking back in their old age, they will realise that they ....
Another example -
D'ici l'année prochaine ils auront dépensé tout l'argent qu'ils ont gagné au loto = By next year they will have spent all the money they have won in the Lottery .

Hope this helps!
