What is the significance of the two tablets for the 10 Commandments?

Why two? Is there a reason why they weren't written on just one tablet? 

Exodus 31:18

ESV - 18 And he gave to Moses, when he had finished speaking with him on Mount Sinai, the two tablets of the testimony, tablets of stone, written with the finger of God.

It was a legal contract between God and His people. One copy was for God and the other copy was for the people.
