That stuff might go on regularly, but so does people getting their ass kicked for touching the wrong guy's girl.
I agree that it's more likely to occur in that environment and if he doesn't want to take the risk at all he should put him and his wife in that position, but that doesn't mean that he should let it pass without any consequences. If a guy's going to get drunk and grope a woman he doesn't know, he does so at his own risk.
I would agree in most situations, but we dont know which bar these guys were in. Much of Athens can be a total meat market and if you want to hang out in these joints, you need to know that it comes with the territory. I dont know how old the OP or his wife is, but if they look young, then dudes might not even think to look for wedding rings in some bars. And sometimes it's not like anyone cares. I've been up for game days and been post partying and had married & single women grab my ass / crotch / lay a kiss on me. Its not even that they are always hitting on you, it just a rambunctious atmosphere.
My point about her being a drama queen is that combined with alcohol (and the OP said that he also had a few beers in him), there is every possibility that the situation was perceived the wrong way / communicated in an exaggerated manner / overdramatized. Of course you have to back up your wife, but keeping in mind that this sort of activity is par for the course, you've been drinking, your wife is a bit of a drama queen, etc, etc...
