This was a false binary Amy had internalized and then rejected. The same was true about reconciling her fierce independence with being in a committed relationship. She did not have to choose between Rory/love and the Doctor/pursuing her own adventures, her own desires.
It’s not even a problem and you are solving this non-problem by first telling us in season five “THIS IS NOT A REAL PROBLEM, IT IS A SYMPTOM OF PATRIARCHY AND SOCIETAL CONDITIONING,” then reintroducing the problem and “solving” it by forcing Amy to forfeit some piece of her identity to satisfy her partner and admit her deference to him
