Greatest sum-up award thus far goes to Tracy.
If you are just "dating" both of them, fine. If you are in a "relationship" (i.e. monogonous dating) with one and "dating" another, the one in the relationship "probably" has the right
to know. But I will say that if there'* no ring on either finger then no one absolutely has
to be told. But it'* the right/courteous thing to do.
The defining difference according to Chris. Others may disagree, that'* fine, post what your interpretation is, no hard feelings here.
With relationship maturity increasing as you go:
1) Dating: casual, no committment
2) Monogomous Dating (i.e. "relationship"): some commitment, common courtesy rules apply
3) Engaged: increased commitment, still not fully committmed, common courtesy rules are now mandatory
4) Married: highest level of commitment and maturity, don't even think about breaking the rules, common courtesy or otherwise
