There should be no need to do that ... that is after all the purpose of 
STP (in effect, what STP would do is prevent one link from being used by 
putting it into blocking state leaving the other in forwarding state).  
Nominally one would prefer bonding (AKA trunking or a LAG) where both 
can be actively used.
