This is called rationalization and it gets taught during your CFI as being a common defense mechanism.

Either pay or you don’t.
I’m saying take the high road.
Have you considered what you’re going to tell the HR interviewer at your airline job?
Company uniform, business hrs.
I don't know. What should I tell them?

Tell them you left on good terms, honored the contract that you signed, like a big boy, and that you won't do the same to your new employer.

An employee who has acted dishonorably with a former employer can't be expected to show honor with a new employer, either.

Grow up, wear long pants, and honor your promises.

Thought it was pretty clear he didn’t sign anything and the verbal agreement applied after checkride complete. To the OP: Listen to Salty. And +1 for do what’s best for you and your family.

But also try your best to resolve it amicably and professionally.

Handshake, signature, word is bond...this is an issue of honor, rather than finding a way to slither out of it. Not all obligations are forged in ink, and he knew that by taking the job he'd incur a responsibility. That has been established.

Pay the bill, walk away.

Next time don't agree to something you won't honor.

I was being facetious.
You need to see this as part of your career planning. You don’t want this to be “the speeding ticket” that never goes away. Industry is good now and it may seem they hire with all sorts of dings now but when the music stops you do not want this to prevent you from getting a job.
You know...the ‘have you ever’ or the ‘tell me about a time’ questions.
Keep your record clean.
In all aspects.
