I only judge people "harshly" when it's obvious to me that they are being selfish, self-centered, and childish and refuse to acknowledge that the world does not exist to cater to their whims. Unfortunately, I perceive that all too frequently. Here is not an example of that. As I've said elsewhere on this forum - you can find lots of examples here (on this forum and on the internet) of how NOT to treat one's partner. Things don't always end up the way we would like, but i hate watching people torture themselves by fighting to preserve a situation that is defective or dysfunctional.
You seem to want to do the right thing, and according to your posts, your actions appear to match your intentions.
