This is not a particular movie

The main character returns to his home/hometown after years and he finds out that his wife is in a relationship with another guy.

I know that this topic is a cliche but I want you to name all movies which includes this topic.

Or it could be a game or tv show.

It's not the main character but there is a similar situation in Ballad of a Soldier (1959).
Pavlov, a front line soldier hears that Alyosha, a comrade of his is getting a few days leave and asks him to deliver 2 pieces of soap (apparently a luxurious item in those times) to his wife but when Alyohsa gets to her apartment it turns out that the wife is seeing another man since.

'Brothers' comes to mind as a more recent movie.
