Of course this is not ignored. It is simply read without forgetting the other parts of the Bible.
It would be a shame to derail the thread into a debate on divorce, and I think I myself (a rather obtuse lay person) have responded to this somewhere else on the forum. The key is, of course, that what is translated as divorce is simply "to let go" (as S. Joseph was going to do to Mary before they were married), and does not imply the dissolution of the sacrament.
So, no mystery here.
