The central conflict Eveline faces is whether or not to run away with her love, the sailor, to Buenos Aires.

She lives for her family, so this would represent a huge break from them, making it a very difficult dilemma for her. She is conflicted within herself whether or not she should go with the sailor, or stay with her family.

Eveline's conflict is personal. She is pondering whether she should elope with Frank or stay with her family, which has never been an easy life.
