The Jerusalem Bible renders this verse:

Now I say this to you: the man who divorces his wife-- I am not speaking of
fornication -- and marries another, is guilty of adultery.

This seems to support the sense of putting aside the case of adultery rather
than making an exception for adultery. More poor head still hurts trying to
puzzle out the practical difference between exclusion and except. But I
think I am starting to turn the corner.

Perhaps if those with differing points of veiw on the issue could offer
their own or their preffered translation of the verse I could see the
distinction better?
