Cisco 2610XM router abilities

I have 2 Cisco 2610xm routers with 1 T1 connecting offices.
We want to increase capacity and would like to add another T1.  It was told to me that I can add an additonal T1 card {WIC-1DSU-T1-V2} and enable the multi-link point to point.

My concern / questions are as follows:
1) Does this make the two T1's act as a single pipe?
2) In the event of 1 T1 going down will this affect both links if they are joined? Or just my performance throughput?
3) What better options are there available?

Thanks in advance for your help.

1) Yes, exactly
2) Just throughput. You get automagic curcuit redundancy
3) Simpler, maybe-- if you're not doing VoIP and need QoS that the Multilink PPP would give you -- is to simply use same cost routing and enable CEF. The Multilink is fairly processor intense, but routing is virtually no hit on the CPU.
