Peter's been implied to have had premarital sex before- with Felicia, for example. As for protection, it's possible Peter used protection and the condom broke, or something. With Peter's luck, even if he used some form of protection that only failed one in a billion times, it would fail on him.
I don't think that it would be considered taking advantage of Gwen to sleep with her, say, three months after her father died.
However, there are a couple of troubling issues. One is that Gwen blamed Spider-Man for her father's death. Would it be ethical for Peter to sleep with her when she would not knowingly sleep with Spider-Man? Remember, Tony Stark slept with Jan while lying to her about being Iron Man, and that's been used as the basis of many of his later portrayals as a jerk (e.g.Civil War).
The second issue is, why wouldn't Gwen TELL Peter if the kids were Peter's? I can't think of a reason.
Also, did MJ know the kids were Peter's in JMS's original scenario? Because if she knew and didn't tell Peter, then she pretty much crossed the Moral Event Horizon.
