There's no law that requires it, nor any reason other than that is the way it has worked out. Additionally, there is significant institutional inertia maintaining the status… quo of two parties. That is, the barriers that other parties face (in terms of gaining sufficient political support) are huge. What tends to happen is that when a significant political movement comes along in the US, rather than have a new political party created around that movement, one of the two major parties "adopts" (or more accurately, co-opts) that movement and incorporates it into that party. The recent Tea Party movement is a good example. In many other countries, this movement would have spawned a significant political party of its own right; in the US, the Republican Party simply decided to champion many of the Tea Party causes, and thus absorbed the support for the Tea Party. The current Winner-Take-All design of most of the US political institutions reinforces having only two major parties. In much of the rest of the world, if a party can consistently pull 20% of the vote in elections, it will generally end up with 10-20% of the power and representation. In the US, such a party ends up with 0%, as it never is able to muster 50% of the vote, and only the largest vote-getter in any election wins any representation. Viewed from another point: with two major parties, each able to pull about 45% of the total vote, one of the two parties is pretty much guarantied to be able to pull 51% of the vote in any single election. Since there is no power to be gained by coming in second place, any party not able to pull in at least 50% of some election is shut out from power.
