Is it wrong to be "non-monogamous"?

I was in a monogamous relationship for 4 years and we recently broke up but are still seeing each other both socially and sexually. During the time that I was with my partner, I never cheated on her, and this was the first relationship I ever had where I didn't cheat. About a month after the break up my ex-partner told me that what she really wanted was to have an "open" relationship. I believed that what she meant by this was that she wanted us to both have the freedom to see other people, so I began to date another woman, and recently began sleeping with her as well. I'm not worried about STD's as it's fairly easy to make love to another woman and not be exposed to these things the way one would be having typical "intercourse" with a man. At any rate, I have been very happy with this arrangement, and the new woman that I'm seeing is a firm believer in non-monogamy so she is also very comfortable in our relationship. The problem I'm having is with my ex-partner. Though we continue to see each other, she has expressed a lot of anger about my new relationship. At the same time, she does not feel prepared to ask me not to see my new "girlfriend" because she doesn't feel ready to make a new commitment to me. Is it wrong of me to continue to see this new woman? In all honesty, there are things that I get from both of these women that I can't seem to get from just one of them, and I feel happier now than I have in many years. I would love to hear some advice and opinions--especially from Molly, Alena, Ladeska, and Gingerleigh. Thanks!
