Every choice, even the most minute one, has consequences.
Steve Rogers chose Bucky Barnes over not only Tony Stark, but the rest of the entire world as well, and he stubbornly stuck to his choice well past the point of no return.
Leaving Siberia behind him with Bucky finally at his side, Steve foolishly thought all the consequences of his choice had been dealt with. He couldn't even begin to fathom the immensity of the butterfly effect that the events of Siberia would have caused. Nobody could know at that time, but from the moment Tony Stark finally woke up in the Avengers Compound's infirmary with Extremis running in his veins, the entire universe would never be the same again.
