There's nothing wrong with a priest leaving the priesthood. Maria Von Trapp decided against being a nun when she fell in love. There's nothing wrong with Eric realizing that the priesthood isn't for him and leaving it to be with Nicole. That doesn't make him a bad person. It's highly rootable.
It's definitely not as big a deal today as it would have been 40 or 50 years ago. So the show needs to give us a compelling reason for why Eric doesn't want to leave. Why his vows are so important to him. It's just not as scandalous as the Thornbirds era. I want for him to have a very firm, strong reason for remaining a priest, but to be absolutely burning up for Nicole. There should definitely be fantasies and dreams at this point. He should be struggling against himself. So should she.
