Honour Your Father and Your Mother does not come out over obeying God's Word. I suggest, if your facing this extreme a problem, that you go to your church leader(s) if you have one. I'm Catholic and when these sort of issues come up we go to our parish priest. In the end it'll be you asking God what's right to do with your life, search scripture, the dicision might not be as hard as you think.

do we ever have a mind of our own apart from pastoral influences i believe God gave us the scriptures that we may on our own discover his mind or will as regard our lives

God didn’t say not to marry someone who isn’t Christian did he? He did say to honor your mother and father. Who knows? Maybe God is putting you in a position to convert this person your parent wants you to marry. By the way, do you love this person you’re supposed to marry?
