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.
I'm not saying there's anything wrong with leaving the priesthood. All I am saying is whatever his reasons were for entering the priesthood, they had to have been compelling. It would do a disservice to his character to fling his collar off in two minutes without some thought behind it.
