This is like the argument if supes killing Zod, that happened in the comics and in Superman 2
It was completely different. In the comics Peter and Gwen became estranged for quite some time. In the Raimi films the promise was with Norman and he did keep true to it. Harry found out because Ock knocked him out. With regards to MJ he tried to stay away from her all the way through the second film regardless of his own feelings and it was eventually her that made the choice.
In ASM he just brushes it off like it was nothing.
