No one should be surprised by this. It's in the quran. "Good women are obedient....As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them." -- quran 4:34 And the child marriage is in imitation of the prophet Moe's consummation of his marriage to Aisha when he was 54 and she was nine.

The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) made this request ten years after the beginning of the Revelation. Aisha was born 5-6 years before the beginning of revelation. Thus, it appears that the age of Aisha was 17-18 when she got married to the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
This point is included in full detail in the book “Asr-? Saadath (The Era of Bliss)” by Mawlana Shibli.(Ist. 1928. 2/ 997)
We can definitely conclude from the biography on Asmaa, Aisha’s elder sister, that Aisha was at a marriageable age when she got married to the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). The old biography books write about Asmaa as follows:“When Asmaa was 100 years of age, she died in the seventy third year of the Emigration (Hijrah). During the Emigration, she was exactly 27 years old. Since Aisha was 10 years younger than her sister was, she needs to be at her 17. Besides, she had been engaged to Jubair before she married the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). So she was a girl at a marriageable age.”(Hatemu’l Enbiya (The Seal of Prophets) The Prophet Muhammad and His life, Ali Himmet Berki, Osman Keskio?lu, p. 210)
