External Conflict ( Man vs. Man ) According to what Mala is saying instead of feeling like a wife, she feels like a "maid". Mala thinks that Vladek treats her like a maid, her having to clean after him because of his "disabilities" leads her thinking like she is a maid or his "nurse" that has to take care of him. Mala and Vladek have a serious Man vs Man conflict according to their points of view of each other.
Internal Conflict ( Man vs. Self ) According to what Mala is saying Vladek is a cheapskate. Which explains the fact why Mala is complaining so much about him. It causes Vladek to have"physical pain to part with a nickel".Which leads it being Man vs. Self.
