Disturbing yet unsurprising. Cardinal Burke being removed.

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.

This was all resolved in the Council of Trent

Quote:Session XXIV
Canon VII. If any one shall say, that the Church doth err in that she hath taught, and
doth teach, according to the evangelical and apostolic doctrine, that the bond of
matrimony cannot be dissolved on account of the adultery of one of the married parties;
and that both, or even the innocent party, who gave not occasion to the adultery, cannot
contract another marriage during the lifetime of the other married person; and, that he is
guilty of adultery, who, having put away the adulteress, shall marry another wife, as also
she, who, having put away the adulterer, shall wed another husband; let him be anathema.
