There's a difference between three random chicks at the start of the franchise and Pepper Potts in Iron Man 3. Marvel even gave her a cameo in Avengers. But as Tony says, "Whatever."
I will admit, given the somewhat goofy/lighthearted tone of the movie, I wonder how serious Tony and Pepper would have taken the situation.
