It wasn't the quitting for a woman part I meant to cite as different, it's the idea that he came so close to never even donning a Bat-suit. To me there's a difference, because it puts an even more tragic overtone to him being "imprisoned" as Batman. And I love that.

To be fair, both MoTP and BB touched aspects of Bruce's origin story without necessarily "contradicting" the lore, because the established lore left many gaps in that section of Bruce's life. It's more like filling in bits of story that we never got to see before. Similar to what Scott Snyder is hyping his upcoming Zero Year run to be all about.
