Disturbing yet unsurprising. Cardinal Burke being removed.

You also need to compare that verse to the parallel verses: Mark 10:2, Luke 16:18, and Matt. 5:32, and 1 Cor. 7:10.

Given those, it needs to interpreted that, while adulterous spouses may be put away, it does not mean they can therefore freely marry another thereafter.

If adultery could lead to a valid dissolution of the marriage, both parties could marry another without committing adultery thereafter.  However, this would merely reward adulterous spouses, since one unjustly put away would not be able to marry again, while an adulterer would be able to.
