Honestly,the two sentences look identical to me. I have a feeling that there’s a slight difference between, "I love my two girlfriends equal" and "I love my two girlfriends equally."

    The word you're considering tell us the about how much you love, so it must be an adverb, i.e., the type of word that modifies a verb. Can you tell which of equal and equally is an adverb?

You could say "My love for them is equal", "I love them both an equal amount" or you could say (as you suggest) "I love them equally" but your first example ("I love my two girlfriends equal") is not normal usage, and wouldn't be considered correct by any teacher.
